We cover the entire EYFS, KS1 and KS2 National Curriculum for music. We want all our children to experience the learning of the whole curriculum, with creativity, enquiry, practical learning, cross-curricular links and application informing our delivery of these learning opportunities; we teach music appreciation, composition and performance. SO that our children, “learn not for school, but for life.”
