 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 half term, 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 affords children the unique opportunity to take part in a number of performances, with schools all over the district. In addition, the children also partake in a special assembly, in which they perform an array of songs that they have learnt. 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 a selection of different instruments (wind, brass, drums etc.). These lessons are delivered by an experienced and qualified musician. We also allow the children 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.
