|Music is led by George|
We encourage enjoyment of music both for itself and as a tool for learning. Children receive music on a weekly basis at least for four half-terms, where they attend lessons with regards to vocal and instrumental performance, composition, improvisation, music appreciation and theory of music. A lot of attention is given to SEN provision, with a great variety of resources and carefully planned lessons to include everyone in the music learning. Our school website has a wide selection of music resources, such as nursery rhymes sung and recorded by our students, guitar/ukulele and percussion tutorials, as well as numerous live and recorded music performances, both by staff and pupils. The school choir gives the opportunity to interested students to sing and perform (every half-term) a variety of songs. Children may also attend lunchtime and after-school clubs, like the school band and the recorder club, offering them the chance to take an instrument at home and participate in important events, such as Christmas Jumper Day and Red Nose Day. A hand-picked selection of students is offered 1:1 tuition to an instrument of their choice, as part of their preparation to the RGT and ABRSM exams. In our school, it is also vital that our staff are included in the music happening, and therefore there are opportunities to perform with the staff school band, as well as participate in collaborative projects with students.
