Music Curriculum Development

Music Long Term Plan

Music Small Steps - Whole School

Music Progression of Skills and Knowledge


We follow the primary national curriculum for music. 

“Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high quality music education should 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. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.” 

At English Martyrs, our music curriculum aims to provide all pupils with an education which engages and inspires children to develop a life-long love of music, increases their self-confidence, creativity, and imagination, and provides opportunities for self-expression and a sense of personal achievement. We offer opportunities for children to develop their talents in all aspects of music including composition, singing and appreciation. We have an excellent range of performing opportunities across the academic year that lend themselves to singing and playing music including our annual music evening in May.
