Welcome to St. Barnabas C.E. Primary School

Statement of Intent

It is our intention that by the time our Year 6 pupils are ready to move to High School they will have developed a life-long interest and enjoyment of music, through playing a variety of instruments, singing a wide selection of songs and listening to music from all cultures and styles. They will have increased their skills and knowledge of Composition, Singing Clarity and Performance.

All pupils from Pre-school through to Year 6 have daily, weekly, termly and yearly musical experiences which will help to promote and develop interpersonal skills, self-confidence and build resilience. Every child is encouraged to be actively involved in creative thinking and individuality. We emphasise the importance of the ‘Growth Mindset’ approach, where having fun and experimenting with music is often the key to their learning, the process being equally, if not more important, than the end result. Opportunity is given for children to take the lead, explore, investigate, compose and make discoveries for themselves alongside the teaching of key skills and knowledge.

There will be many opportunities for shared quality experiences and performances with families and the wider community.
