- To encourage and develop pupils' natural curiosity towards what they hear.

To ensure high standards of teaching and learning in Music, we implement a curriculum that is progressive throughout the whole school. Music is taught as part of a project-based approach, focusing on knowledge and skills stated in the Early Years and National Curriculum, with the same importance given to it as the core subjects. To ensure progression and consistency across the school, the Charanga scheme is used from EYFS through to Year 6.
The curriculum coverage is taught in a progressive and purposeful manner, with teachers using their professional judgement and assessment for learning to make judgements on how pupils are progressing. Additionally, music lessons are taught weekly throughout the summer term in Year 4, which progress into Year 5, and pupils in Year 1 receive an introduction taught weekly throughout a term by Lincs Music Service.
Throughout the year, pupils sing daily during assembly, and are also exposed to a variety of instruments, composers and musical genres. Whilst listening, they are encouraged to consider different elements of the inter-related dimensions of music.
The impact and measure of this is to ensure that pupils are equipped with detailed knowledge and skills that will enable them to be ready for the curriculum at Key Stage 3 and for life as an adult in the wider world.
We want pupils to have enjoyed learning about Music and therefore be inspired to apply their learning and broaden their skills even further in the future.
