Music

Here at St Mary’s, we strive to achieve music excellence for all children through a curriculum which creates authentic opportunities that excite, engage and inspire all learners. Our children are provided with opportunities to listen to, analyse and create music whilst building upon musical skills year by year. Our Music curriculum is delivered by specialist teachers who inspire and enthuse children about music.

We use singing as a platform to praise in assemblies, collective worships and masses. Children are encouraged to perform in groups and as individuals through song to help build confidence.  In addition to this, our year 3 and 4 children are taught choral singing by the Leeds Diocese and peripatetic piano lessons are offered to Key Stage Two children.
