At St Louis Catholic Primary School we value music because it is a must powerful and unique form of communication that can change and impact the way children feel, think and act. We believe that teaching music helps the body and the mind work together, and helps us to further our spiritual development. Exposing children to music during early development helps them to learn the sounds and meanings of words. Dancing to music helps children build motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to develop their musical potential and we aim to nurture and encourage musical development across the school.

Our whole curriculum is shaped by our school vision, which aims to enable all children, regardless of background, ability, additional needs, to flourish to become the very best version of themselves they can possibly be. We teach the National Curriculum, supported by a clear skills and knowledge progression. This is through the scheme Charanga – which uses specific pieces of music as a base for children to learn and innovate, giving non-specialist teachers the confidence to teach the subject well; ensuring skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children.

During the year, all children will have the opportunity to develop their understanding, skills and techniques in music. We welcome parents to our concerts and productions throughout the year to share the musical ability we have at our school.
