At Queensmead Primary Academy the music curriculum engages, inspires and motivates our children, playing an important part in their personal development and reflecting the culture and society they live in. Music has the power to foster connections with the brain, which will improve memory and coordination. The skills involved in listening to and playing music also help our pupils develop self-esteem, self-discipline, cooperation, creativity and self-motivation.
At Queensmead we aim to instill in our children a life-long love of music and to promote and support curriculum music for all children as an entitlement through their classroom experiences. We follow the National Curriculum, providing teaching and resources which promote knowledge, skills and understanding in music, in relation to both our pupils’ own and others’ musical traditions.
