Music is taught by staff across the school and the children experience a wide variety of musical genres and instruments. Mrs Evans is the Subject Lead for Music.
We use the Charanga Music scheme to teach the specific knowledge and skills of music and link the teaching of music to our varied topics.
The children’s musical skills are enriched through music programmes provided by the Derbyshire Music Hub such as singing, brass and woodwind lessons.
CPD is provided by the Music Partnership and the Music Hub.
We have a school Choir and an after-school Choir Club, both of which meet on a weekly basis. We sing as a school in weekly assemblies and at our Christmas, Easter and Harvest services. We encourage our pupils to take instrumental tuition in school which is provided by Derbyshire County Council.
