At Kingsfield, our aim is to provide a music curriculum which will enable each child to reach their full potential in music. Its intention is to encourage children to enjoy singing, composing and performing and provide children with the opportunity to perform in front of an audience both within and outside of school.


Our curriculum is centred round ‘Charanga’, a music-based scheme, in which the children learn to sing and play instruments. They also have the opportunity to develop an understanding of pulse, rhythm and notation. The programme incorporates the use of technology such as ‘Garage Band’, enabling the children to compose their own pieces.


Our music curriculum is enriched through the opportunity to work both independently and as part of a group, ensuring that skills of resilience and teamwork are promoted. A wide variety of musical activities are provided and children have the opportunity to perform outside of school within our local community to ensure that they understand the significance of music and its place within the wider world.


Our children will leave Kingsfield with an awareness and appreciation of different musical traditions and genres. They are able to enjoy music either as listener, creator or performer. They can sing, feel a pulse, add rhythms and create melodies in a group and are in a position to further develop these skills as they move into Key Stage Three.
