Music is a central part to life at Our Lady’s and Saint John’s, and our music lessons provide children with opportunities to develop fundamental skills of creativity, self- expression and collaboration which can in turn create a life-long passion for music.

Our staff are committed to ensuring that all pupils receive high-quality Music lessons, in line with the Statutory Requirements of the National Curriculum 2014.



The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:


§ perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians


§ learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence


§ understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
