At Sacred Heart School, we have a rich and varied programme of music lessons.

On Fridays, the children take part in enrichment activities; music, art and sport. We offer instrumental tuition taught by Mrs Rhodes and Mr Form.


Every year we  are lucky enough to welcome Sowerby Music to our school where the children experience a live concert and take part in a workshop. Helen and Ben, who played the Trumpet and Bassoon, came to give a concert and lead a workshop. We all had a fantastic morning!


All children take part in class music lessons. Year 5 and 6 pupils are currently begin taught to play the Djembe by Mr. Form. Our school orchestra is open to pupils in Key Stage 2 and we rehearse on a Friday morning. The whole school sing in the choir and we sing daily as part of our collective worship. On Friday mornings, we have hymn and singing practise.

Music Programme of Study

Key Stages 1 and 2

Purpose of study

 Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity.

 A high-quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.

 As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon. 


The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Perform, Listen to, Review and Evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians.
  • Learn to Sing and to use their voices.
  •  Create and Compose Music on their own and with others.
  •  Learn to play a musical instrument
  • Use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence.
  • Understand and Explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the  inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
