Intent, Implementation and Impact

Intent

At Holy Cross Catholic Primary School, we aim to create a musical atmosphere within Holy Cross to ensure that all children get several opportunities to learn a musical instrument and give performances to other classes and parents.

 

To design a curriculum where children cover different elements of music, learn important vocabulary and develop a good understanding on how music has changed throughout history.

 

To continue to review and update the music curriculum to ensure that staff and children experience good musical experiences and improve their knowledge and understanding.

 

To work on training for staff who teach music to ensure that their subject knowledge is strong in order to inspire future musicians within school as well as let children experience musicians through lessons and assemblies to understand jobs they could have in their own futures.
