Music Intent Statement
Our intent at St Joseph's Catholic Primary School is to deliver a broad and balanced Music curriculum that is ambitious, challenging and engaging. At St Joseph's the intention is that children gain a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres. Our objective is for all of our children, including those who are disadvantaged and pupils with SEND, to develop a curiosity for the subject, as well as an understanding and acceptance of the validity and importance of all types of music. We are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community, and are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves in music, in a variety of different contexts.

All the children are able to take part in singing, percussion and appreciation of music. School has a wide variety of musical instruments and resources to aid teaching and learning. Instrumental tuition is provided by the Music Support Service through auditions for pupils in KS2, but has to be paid for by parents. These lessons are held during the school day. Currently pupils receive tuition in the Brass and stringed. Children are encouraged to perform in assemblies and other social occasions.
