At Westover Primary School, we are committed to ensuring that the music curriculum is not only inspiring, but also accessible to all children. Music should be practical and creative, enhancing not only the lives of the individual learner, but by also bringing the school community together in rehearsal and performance. Music is a unique and inclusive way of communication that also has the ability to motivate and develop resilience. It plays an important part in the development of working as a team, but also gives the opportunity for personal expression. Our aim is to promote enthusiasm and a passion for music in all its forms; from learning nursey rhymes and rhythms in early years, to whole class instrumental lessons in woodwind and string in Key Stage 2. By engaging children in a broad range of musical experiences, we can offer our children opportunities to develop skills, attitudes and attributes that can support learning in other areas, as well as developing life skills such as listening, concentration, self-confidence and sensitivity to others.
