At Whitchurch, we believe that Music both impacts and enriches our pupils’ lives providing a wealth of learning opportunities and transferrable skills. At the heart of Music, the curriculum is engaging and meaningful ensuring that it is inclusive for all pupils and focuses on the development of core musicianship skills. In addition, our curriculum promotes our core values of resilience, self-belief, respect, responsibility, honesty and generosity and is linked to the key drivers and aims of the school encouraging pupils to become well-rounded individuals, resilient to challenges, motivated lifelong learners and respectful and responsible global citizens.

We feel Music teaches our children:

  • To be appreciative of different music styles and traditions
  • To become analytical when listening to music and learn to use subject specific vocabulary
  • To develop their problem solving skills which allow the children to think creatively to find solutions both independently and within a team environment
  • To build positive relationships and understand how to communicate effectively, as well as managing conflict appropriately
  • To set high expectations in their approach to lessons
  • To believe in their potential and celebrate their successes with confidence
  • To take risks within their learning and work independently and confidently
  • To embrace every opportunity for improvement
  • The importance of undertaking enrichment activities that can celebrate their talents and interests
