At St George’s School we understand the importance of music and the benefits being exposed to music has on children’s wellbeing. Music is also a culturally defining art form and learning about music from around the world helps to connect people and bring them together
We follow the National Curriculum Programme of Study for Music. The curriculum content is delivered through statutory skills based on broad headings of listening, performing and composing. The programme sets out the skills to be taught in Key Stage 1, lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2.
We teach music creatively and wherever possible take a practical approach to engage children in hands on learning. We encourage children to be inquisitive, make links and pose questions in order to begin to understand how music has enriched society throughout the ages and for years to come. We strive to expose the students to a high quality of music that reflects excellence and diversity.

As the children enter the hall for collective worship, we play a piece of music by a famous composer. Once seated, the children are able to listen to the music and learn more about its composer.
