Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. At St Chad’s, we believe that a strong commitment to music and creativity allows all children, no matter their academic ability, learning needs or cultural background, to participate and enjoy music. Children experience a high quality music education that engages and inspires. Children develop their creativity, self-confidence and their sense of achievement through music.
Throughout our music journey from reception to year 6, children get many opportunities to perform, listen to, review and evaluate music from different historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of great composers and musicians. Children learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others.
All children have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument and progress to the next level of musical excellence. We invite music specialists into school to work with our children. We have children learning many instruments from guitars and ukuleles to keyboards and drums.
St Chad’s have an amazing choir encompassing children from all year groups. They have many opportunities to perform in-school such as at the summer fair and in assemblies. Children also participate in many out of school performances, for example the local church and in Clifton Cathedral.
We are proud of our music provision and truly feel staff at St Chad’s are fully invested in providing the best musical opportunities for our children.
