At Upton Primary School, we believe that music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. The intention of our music scheme is to develop and inspire the children’s love of music, their talent as musicians and encourage our children in their musical journey.
Our curriculum introduces children to music from around the world and across generations allowing them to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon. By introducing them to a variety of musical experiences and igniting a passion for music, we seek to nurture a lifelong love of music.
From the national curriculum we have identified the following key concepts that we wish to develop through progressive taught skills and knowledge:
We aim to inspire children to think critically, value diversity and create a sense of identity and have explicit links to the Oxfam Global Citizenship throughout our music curriculum to enable our children to do so.
