At Sacred Heart, we believe it is vital to offer all pupils a music curriculum that is broad, diverse and high-quality, which engages and inspires them to develop a life-long love of music, increases their self-confidence, creativity, and imagination, and provides opportunities for self-expression and a sense of personal achievement. We believe that music is an essential learning experience for all pupils that strongly supports pupils’ well-being and well-roundedness. Not only does music promote happiness and excitement, but it develops pupils’ cognitive and processing skills, sense of timing, fine motor skills and listening skills. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to take part in music including after school activities such as choir where they can take part in events and performances. We believe that this helps children to feel part of a community. We organise and collaborate in projects to enable children to share their musical skills at different events both inside and outside of school.
We follow and make adaptations to Charanga to teach our music curriculum.
