Music is a powerful, unique form of communication that can change the way pupils feel, think and act. It brings together intellect and feeling and enables personal expression, reflection and emotional development. As an integral part of culture, past and present, it helps pupils understand themselves and relate to others, forging important links between the home, school and the wider world.

The teaching of music develops pupils’ ability to listen and appreciate a wide variety of music and to make judgements about musical quality.

It encourages active involvement in different forms of amateur music making, both individual and communal, developing a sense of group identity and togetherness. It also increases self-discipline and creativity, aesthetic sensitivity and fulfilment.

Our Music Intent

At St Francis Catholic Primary School, we seek to provide an excellent music education program, using the Charanga platform, that not only fosters a love for music but also enables pupils to develop their musical skills, knowledge, and appreciation. Our intent is to ensure that all children have access to a high-quality music curriculum that is inclusive, culturally diverse, and supports their overall personal, social, and emotional development.
