Music

At Langdale Primary School we value music because it is a powerful and unique art form. Music boosts creativity and supports development in social skills, self-discipline and confidence. This policy is informed by current national guidance on best practice, in-service training, staff discussion and professional judgement.

 

Aims for our policy:

 

  1. To provide a music curriculum where children develop a solid understanding of the musical elements through the skills of performing, composing and appraising.
  2. To ensure children experience a range of classical, rock, folk, jazz and popular music taken from different times and cultures.
  3. To ensure all children in the school have a half term’s music tuition from K2M. Children from Y4-6 are offered the opportunity to continue these lessons in school time (privately or in small groups), including financial support for Pupil Premium children.
  4. To ensure all children have the chance to be involved in free extra-curricular musical groups including: choir, recorders, violin and small ensemble groups.

 

What does this look like at Langdale?

 

Each child will have a half term of hour group sessions with a professional music teacher. Children will have the opportunity to continue with private or small group tuition, with financial help available for Pupil Premium families.

All other music lessons are taught by class teachers. Where possible, music objectives will be taught through the Creative Curriculum. However, to ensure all musical skills are covered, units will also be taught using the CHARANGA website, developed and recommended by Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Music Education Hub.
