 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 notations.



Whole School Singing Assemblies

Whole school singing assemblies are delivered every month, where children learn songs from a range of different genres. Additionally, the children will also become familiar with a range of different composers.


School choir

The choir takes place, after school, every Monday. It is delivered by a professional performer and singing specialist.  The school choir offers children the unique opportunity to take part in a number of performances, with schools all over Birmingham. In addition, the children also partake in a special assembly, in which they perform an array of songs that they have learned. We have watched the children not only become skilled performers but also develop their team-building skills and confidence.


The Music Service

At Leigh Primary School children have the opportunity to learn how to play a selection of different instruments (such as the clarinet, flute, fife, violin and steel pan drums). Children have weekly sessions and are also given the opportunity to take the instruments home.  A number of different performances are arranged throughout the year, enabling the children to showcase their compositions to their peers and parents.
