All are valued, all are loved

Music

But the angels said to them,
“Do not be afraid, I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all people.”
Luke 2:10

The angels brought the Good News that God’s son had been born. Jesus teaches us that we should value and love one another. By our example, our children are nurtured and encouraged to be kind and compassionate, showing God’s love to those around them and enabling everyone to flourish.

Everyone is included in the St Edburg’s family, inspired to make a positive change and encouraged to interact with the community around us. 

All are valued, all are loved.

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” – Plato

Music Policy

Music Long Term Plan

Music Progression of Skills

Pedagogy

At St Edburg’s school music enables our children to broaden their experiences and encounters of different cultures, beliefs and times. Through music they deepen their understanding of the struggles and celebrations of different composers and musicians. They widen their thinking in response to music that reflects themes and issues as well as having the opportunity to explore how that music makes them feel.

We ensure that all children can play an instrument and play it well. In our school all children will have time mastering notes on the recorder, chords on a ukulele and using their voices in part singing and unison. All of these skills ensure that they learn the vital social and interaction skills necessary to be able to work in a group working alongside each other. Working in this way develops their skills in collaboration and co-operation and improves concentration. Music making is inclusive – all children can take part contributing in their own way and giving them the space to showcase talent.

Our music programme empowers children to be imaginative and creative, inventive and resourceful! It is much more than learning to read the dots on a page or listening to background noise! Music is another language for children to communicate with!
