Purpose of study

Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education 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. 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 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 notations


Music Ambassadors

Music Ambassadors are chosen for their love of Music across the school. We felt this was an amazing opportunity for children, who are interested and passionate about Music, to shine! 

Music Ambassador roles and responsibilities:

  • To share a love of creating music and appreciating music with their class.
  • To link with Mr Royle, the subject leader
  • To think and develop creative ways to promote music across the school.
  • To look for ways for pupils to have the opportunity to develop music.
  • To give the pupils in their class a voice and help them to share their ideas.
