The purpose of the Music curriculum is to:
- Enable all pupils to develop their musical potential through engaging experiences, recognising that music as art is an important part of cultural identity. We also recognise that music benefits both cognitive development and character development. Performing is a crucial part of this.
- Encourage and prepare students for lifelong musical learning and appreciation, both in and out of school, including preparation for further study if appropriate.
Learning music is a cultural entitlement for every child, and we hope that our approach will ensure that all pupils receive this and are successful in their learning.
