Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education will engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. Our curriculum introduces children to music from all around the world and across generations, teaching children to respect and appreciate the music of all traditions and communities.



As a school we use the Kapow Music Scheme that supports us to teach music through songs and instrument courses that link to themes within the curriculum. Children will develop the musical skills of singing, playing tuned and untuned instruments, improvising and composing music, and listening and responding to music. They will develop an understanding of the history and cultural context of the music they listen to and learn how music can be written down. In each lesson, pupils will actively participate in musical activities drawn from a range of styles and traditions, developing their musical skills and their understanding of how music works.



The Music curriculum at St Augustine’s is delivered first and foremost to help children to feel that they are musical and to develop a lifelong love of music. At the end of each unit there is often a performance element which brings classes and the school community together through the love of listening to friends and pupils, performing. Pupils will leave St Augustine’s with the confidence to sing in harmony, be creative and collaborative and they will have an understanding of music around the world.
