‘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.’ (Department of Education, National Curriculum)
Our vision at Upton Heath Primary School is to empower our children to succeed in a changing world, and our Music curriculum aims to help do this. We aim to engage, motivate and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and to make music lessons an enjoyable learning experience. Music is a unique way of communicating which can inspire and motivate pupils. It is a vehicle for personal expression, and it can play an important part in children’s personal and cognitive development. Our music curriculum aims to reflect the culture and society that we live in so that the teaching and learning of music enables children to better understand their world. We want our music lessons to be fun and inspiring, engaging the children with songs, lyrics and movement. We want the children to be able, reflective and expressive, developing their own appreciation of music with the opportunities we provide as a school. Our pupils will learn that music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. They will be inspired and engaged by music education. Our pupils will develop a love of music and grow their talent as musicians, and in turn increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.
