It is our aim that all children at Senacre Wood Primary School experience a high-quality, inspiring music education which instils a life-long enjoyment and appreciation for music. We hope to further the children’s creativity and explore their talents, developing our school values and attributes such as: curiosity, independence, innovation, reflection, resilience and collaboration. We are committed to providing all children with learning opportunities and enrichments in music and we deliver a broad music curriculum, underpinned by the Model Music Curriculum (DFE 2021) as the basis for content and expectation to fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum and the National Plan for Music Education.


At Senacre Wood Primary School, we want our pupils to receive a music education which engages and inspires them to develop a curiosity and love of music, enjoying all that music has to offer. Through weekly specialist teaching, the children will experience full coverage of the National Music Curriculum and Foundation Stage Framework, learning key aspects of music in both discrete learning and cross-curricular links. We aim to ensure that all pupils in EYFS, KS1 and KS2 are given great opportunities to listen, sing, play, perform, compose and evaluate in their music lessons as well as developing a widening repertoire of music. We are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community, and are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves in music in a variety of different contexts.
