Music is a key element of school life, with pupils engaging in music lessons with their class teacher, but also participating in weekly Singing Assemblies linked to the time of year or school theme. Music is also used across the curriculum as a vehicle for learning facts and engaging the children in learning. In Year 2, pupils work with a music specialist, where they learn to play the violin. Every year the whole school partakes in a Christmas carol concert in a local Church, and Year 2 children go into the community to sing and raise mioney for St Luke’s. Each year group puts on an annual performance – with Foundation Stage and Year 1 performing at the end of the Autumn Term, and Year 2 performing at the end of the Summer Term. We are a ‘Champion School’, recognised by the local authority and we have achieved the ‘Sing Up’ gold award for providing pupils with a confidence building and stimulating music curriculum.
