At St Michael’s Primary Academy, we will provide children with access to a high-quality music education which will develop their talents and joy as musicians and give them a lifelong love of music.
We will do this by teaching them to sing, to compose and to perform with their peers and to different audiences. We will teach them to listen, appreciate and talk about both live and recorded music throughout a wide range of genres and through history.
All children in Key Stages 1 and 2 will learn a musical instrument each year in their classes.
At St Michael’s, we recognise the huge contribution that music makes to the wellbeing of the whole school community, and we will strive to create many opportunities to share the richness that music brings, particularly with whole school musical events and experiences.
