Music & Performing Arts

Our Music curriculum is designed to progressively develop children’s skills in the areas of musical appreciation (listening and discussing), performance on instruments and with voice, composition and recording and evaluating musical performances.   We enhance our pupil’s experiences by accessing provision such Cornwall Music Trust’s ‘First Access’ and inviting visiting musicians/artistes/orchestras to perform and run workshops.  We have an annual summer, musical production, which is always a great success and well received. 


We follow the National Curriculum for programmes of study for Music which aims to ensure that all children:

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations

The following musical instrument tuition is available at school:

  • Guitar
  • Brass
