Intent of Music

Please see below for an overview of Music.

Our Music curriculum is coherent, planned, sequenced, progressive, challenging, relevant to our context and meets the requirements of the National Curriculum from EYFS to year 6.

Our inclusive curriculum promotes equity and celebrates diversity, it is designed to respect the rights and dignity of every child enabling all children to reach their potential in a communication friendly environment.

Our music curriculum is designed to meet the context of our school. It equips our children with the knowledge, skills and attitude to master their learning in music and be confident learners now and for life.

St Paul's CE Primary School understands that music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity.  We provide a high-quality music education that engages and inspires our pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.

Our curriculum is progressive and allows children to experience a variety of music genres, styles and traditions; starting in EYFS through to Year six. Music is a subject that is accessible to all learners and ensures that children of all ages, abilities and backgrounds are included and encouraged to become creative learners, enjoy music and are able to widen their cultural understanding.

St Paul's music curriculum intends to give children the opportunity to become masters of music and become lifelong musicians.

The new National Curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the interrelated dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notation
