“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” – Plato
At St John’s Primary School, we believe music lessons should be lively, interactive, and accessible for children of all abilities. We recognise the power that music has to change lives. Above all, through our curriculum, we aim to boost every child’s sense of confidence and self-belief; transformative traits we hope will remain with them throughout their lives. We focus on performing, listening, composing and the history of music to ensure our pupils have a solid foundation of musical understanding and appreciation. In addition, our cyclical curriculum weaves the nine interrelated dimensions of music across all lessons. Through the wider opportunities that we provide, our pupils are immersed in a range of different experiences to foster a love and appreciation of music.
