Curriculum Lead: Mrs. Katie Ford
At Harby C of E Primary School, we aim to provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music to develop skills, to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms and to comment about the quality of music.
Music is a unique way of communicating that can engage, inspire and motivate children. It can engage personal expression, play an important part in the personal development of children and can promote a keen interest in music which will last for the whole of their lives.
Music reflects the culture and society we live in, and so the teaching and learning of music enables children to better understand the world they live in. As well as being a creative and enjoyable activity, music can also be a highly academic and demanding subject. It also plays an important part in helping children feel part of a community. We provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music to develop skills to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms and to comment about the quality of music.
At Harby CE Primary School we aim to:
1. promote and support curriculum music for all children as an entitlement through their classroom experiences and follow the 2014 National Curriculum in full.
2. provide experiences and resources which promote knowledge, skills and understanding in music, in relation to both their own and others' musical traditions.
3. provide learning experiences in music which promote confidence and development of the child.
4. promote a music curriculum with relevant differentiated experiences to make music accessible to all children.
5. promote progression and continuity in music through careful curriculum planning and monitoring in line with the school's policies assessment and recording.
6. promote the continuing development of expertise and confidence in music for all members of the teaching staff through staff meetings planning meetings.
7. recognise ways in which computing skills may be incorporated into and developed by the music curriculum and used to enhance the musical experiences of all children.
8. promote the opportunity to perform to a wider audience.
9. recognise and respect the spiritual, social and cultural links with music.
10. promote cross-curricular links with other subjects.
