'Love, Courage and Fellowship'
As musicians, our INTENT is:
to inspire a great love of music and its creation in our children.
We want them to harbour an understanding of how music enriches the lives of people past and present; from all cultures and walks of life.
We aim for children to enjoy creating pieces of music and to have a thorough knowledge of the musical traditions which have shaped the world we live in.
We want children to turn to music in their leisure time as a source of pleasure and mindfulness.
We aim for all children to be confident in discussing music and able to create a range of music using different instruments.
Our teaching will enable pupils to make links between music and all other areas of our curriculum, equipping them with an excellent general knowledge and to appreciate that music embodies some of the highest forms of human creativity.
We IMPLEMENT this thorugh:
The overarching aim for music in the National Curriculum is to provide a high-quality music curriculum which should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.
It should provide access to a variety of different styles of music where pupils can play instruments and sing as well as create their own rhythms and patterns.
As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.

The IMPACT of this is:
that we have a community of enthusiastic musicians and music lovers who have a thorough knowledge of the musical themes taught and will be able to link this to other learning.
Music will form an important part of children’s lives outside school and in their future lives as a source of pleasure and expression.
Governors, through the Governor Visit Plan and Subject Leader Reports, evaluate the work of subject leaders in ensuring that the quality of teaching and learning across the school is at least good. They ensure that pupils are ready for transition to secondary school and are equipped with the skills to flourish and succeed as caring individuals.
