Music

Intent

 

Music connects us all. We recognise it is a performing art tool which inspires creativity, is a means of self-expression and steers children on their musical journeys as well as giving them opportunities to connect with others.

 

It is a universal language that allows us to connect across the world, encouraging diversity and multicultural understanding. Giving children an understanding of creative developments over time.

 

We encourage children to adopt a life-long love and enjoyment by exposing them to a wealth of musical experiences and igniting a passion for music.

 

Music affects emotions and is beneficial to our well-being. It forms our identity, promotes a sense of community and belonging. It enhances self-esteem and self-discipline, nurturing transferable skills.
