“Music is a more potent instrument than any other for education, because rhythm and harmony find their way into inward places of the soul.” Plato 

Music Subject Leader is Miss Wallbanks



Our curriculum intent for Music is that every child will: 


  • Be engaged and inspired to develop a love of music
  • Develop their self- confidence, creativity and sense of achievement
  • Perform, compose, listen and appraise music across a wide range of historical periods and genres 
  • Have an opportunity to learn a musical instrument
  • Learn to sing with confidence and use their voices to create music on their own and with others
  • Develop an understanding of the history of music, knowing about great musicians and their contributions.
  • Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated


At Holy Trinity, we believe that music is a vital part of the children's education and imperative for developing children's creativity, self- confidence, social and personal development as well as their language skills. Music is used to unite the school, providing many opportunities for children to perform together, share their talent and develop self-confidence. We provide positive learning experiences which are enjoyable, rewarding and aim to develop every child's sense of achievement. We generate an environment which is supportive and flexible to allow for creativity and self-expression. 


Implementation of the Music Curriculum at Holy Trinity


Music is taught through the topic of each term and we use Charanga to support our teaching. We offer pupils in Year 4 the opportunity to learn a musical instrument through Berkshire Maestros organisation. All pupils are given the opportunity to sing/ perform in class assemblies as well as Harvest and Easter services. EYFS and KS1 perform their own nativity every year and KS2 present a Christmas carol service at the Holy Trinity Church. Year 6 perform their end of year show which is supported by Years 4 and 5.



Each class from EYFS to Year 6 has a weekly singing assembly providing all pupils with the opportunity to listen, sing, compose, perform and appraise music. Children are encouraged to share their musical talents by playing and performing to the school in solo and ensemble contexts.  


The Impact of the Music Curriculum at Holy Trinity

The impact of this curriculum design will lead to outstanding progress over time across key stages relative to a child’s individual starting point and their progression of skills.  Their achievements are celebrated in our Big Music Book and displays around the school.


At Holy Trinity Primary School, we seek to ensure a strong musical culture where children are fostering a love and passion for music and their belief and are living our vision of being happy and doing good.
