Music at St Bridget's


At St Bridget's we value music education. We believe that for pupils to make progress in music, it starts from the assumption that a central purpose of good music education is for pupils to make more music, think more musically and consequently become more musical.

Our curriculum is designed so that content might reasonably be mastered in the time aviliable, remembering that sometimes less is more. There are plentiful opportunities for piupils to return to consolidate their short-term learning. There is repetition of key curricular content with the gradual introduction of new ideas, methods and concepts.

It is our intention to help children to feel that they are musical and to develop a life long love of music. We focus on developing the skills, knowledge and understanding that children need in order to become confident performers, composers and listeners. Our curriculum intorduces children to music from all around the world and across generations, teaching children to respect and appreciate the music of all traditions and communities.

Children will dveelop the musical skills of singing, playing tuned and untuned instruments, improvising and composing music,  and listening listening and responding to music. They will develop an understanding of the history and cultural context of the music that they listen to and learn how music can be written down.  Through music, our curriculum helps children develop transferable skills such as team working, leadership, creative thining, problem solving, decisioin making, and presentation and perfoormance skills. These skills are vital to children's development as learners and have a wider application in their general lives outside and beyond school.
