Important Announcements

Are you ready for our new uniform?

If you still need to order your new uniform for September please hand your order form in to the school office.  We will process your order as quickly as possible however it is unlikely that these will now be delivered in time for end of term.

ParentPay

You should have received a letter advising of our switch to ParentPay for paying dinner money.  This system will be a great asset to the school as we make the transition to a cashless operation. If you need any assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact the School Office, who will all be happy to help.

Music

Purpose of Study

Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.

Aims of the National Curriculum

The National Curriculum for Music aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • 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 notation

We aim to teach exciting, interactive music lessons by bringing together great music, modern teaching methods and the latest educational technology.

charanga-musical-school

We follow the Charanga Musical School curriculum which supports all aspects of music in school including the new music curriculum, as well as providing children and their families with opportunities to continue learning and exploring music at home through Music World.

Children also enjoy whole-class instrumental tuition through the MAPAS Wider Opportunities programme. They develop their performance skills throughout the year by performing for a range of audiences and at concert halls including the Lowry Theatre and at the Bridgewater Hall with the world-class Halle Orchestra.

We have a wonderful School Choir for children in Year 4 to Year 6. They rehearse every week with Miss Wills and Miss Stephens and the highlight of the year is their participation in the Young Voices Concert with thousands of local school children at the Manchester Arena.

Singing Assembly for all children from Reception to Year 6 takes place every week in school and we learn to appreciate a wide range of musical artists and genres.
