At St Hilda’s Primary School, we believe that music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and develop their talent as musicians. This increases their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose and appreciate a range of music.
We aim to ensure that music teaching gives children the chance to perform, listen to and review music, including music from different time periods. We want them to explore music and listen to the work of different composers and musicians to appreciate different styles and improve their own composition skills. We encourage the development of singing skills and promote opportunities to share talent during extra curricular activities, as well as in school.
