At Holy Family Catholic Primary School, we believe that music can enhance children’s knowledge, learning, well being and confidence. Children gain a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions and musical genres. We have recently started a choir where children are encouraged to sing and develop their musical skills. The children are excited about taking part in Young Voices early next year.

At Holy Family, we believe that a clear and effective scheme of work that provides coverage in line with the National Curriculum is essential to meet the requirements of our children in order for them to thrive. Music is taught throughout school using the award winning Music Express Scheme devised by Collins. Our music curriculum ensures children sing, listen, play, perform and evaluate. This is embedded in the classroom activities as well as in assemblies, various concerts and performances and the learning of instruments.

We value the role that music has in achieving outstanding outcomes for all children. We believe that children should have a broad and balanced curriculum to support their learning in English and Maths which is why we develop learning in music through the Music Express Scheme of Work.

Here is a copy of our long term plan using this scheme of work for each year group.
