At Kidsgrove Primary School we are committed to providing all children with learning opportunities to engage in Music. This policy sets out a framework within which teaching and non-teaching staff can work, and gives guidance on planning, teaching and assessment. Music is an essential part of the curriculum, it provides a means of exploring, appreciating and understanding the cultural and creative world in which we live and how it has evolved.

Music explores the relationship between the Earth and its people through the study of place, space and environment. It is a unique way of communicating that can inspire and motivate children. It is a vehicle for personal expression, and it can play an important part in the personal development of people. Music reflects the culture and society we live in, and so the teaching and learning of music enables children to better understand the world. Besides being a creative and enjoyable activity, music is a highly academic and demanding subject. It also plays an important part in helping children feel part of a community. We provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music, to develop the skills, to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms, and to begin to make judgements about the quality of music.
