We aim, through a balanced and varied programme of musical activity, to develop and enjoyment of, and an enthusiasm for music. Music plays an important part in the life of our school and all children have the opportunity for an active involvement in the listening to, composing and performing of music. Children are also invited to receive tuition from external staff. Charges are made for this opportunity.
All schools within The Staffordshire Schools Multi Academy Trust, all pupils are taught music in a safe, supportive and enthusiastic environment.
Through listening, appraising, exploring and creating and with hands on approach, music lessons aim to inspire pupils to engage with music in a fun and exciting way.
With guidance and sensitivity, pupils are encouraged to respect music whatever its style, genre or cultural background.
We provide the pupils with many opportunities to engage with music other than in the classroom. Music is part of whole school life, with pupils able to access instrumental lessons as well as take part in choirs and other ensembles. Music education is enhanced by visiting musicians and visits to concerts outside of the school.
As well as studying music theory, pupils learn about the history of music, famous composers and musicians and music from other times, places, styles and cultures.
With high expectations and opportunities that create exciting and happy memories, our academy aims to equip our pupils with the tools and experiences that will allow them to go on enjoying music throughout their lives.
