St Bartholomew's CE Primary

Considerate, Co-operative, Confident

Music Curriculum Page

Our School Vision: Our goal is to produce members of society who are Considerate to everyone they meet, who have a Co-operative approach to life and who are Confident in each other and in themselves to strive for the very best that they can be.

We aim to achieve this by using Christian values as our guide and helping them to grow within a caring and inclusive community

How Music fits into the vision: Music is an important part in teaching confidence in our children at St. Bartholomew's. Children are given the opportunity in each year group to learn musical instruments, and  are encouraged to express themselves through music in class situations, assemblies and Key Stage performances, both as soloists and as part of an ensemble. We believe music helps our children in developing co-operation with others, and consideration for different cultures and beliefs. 

Our Music Subject Leader: Hello, my name is Mrs Livsey and I lead Music. I trained as a pianist and singer at Huddersfield University and I am passionate about providing wider musical opportunities to our children at St. Bartholomew's. I deliver music to each class in school, tailoring each lesson to fit in with the key areas of music: understanding music, listening and appraising, improvising, composing and performance. 

Our Music Curriculum: Our Music Curriculum follows the requirement of the National Curriculum, providing a broad and balanced curriculum and ensuring development of musical concepts and knowledge and skills. 

Our intent: Our intent at St. Bartholomew's Primary School is to develop the knowledge and understanding children need in order to become confident performers, composers and listeners. We aim to help children feel that they are musical and to develop a life-long love of music.
