We believe music is very important at Brampton Primary School. The main aim is to foster pupils’ sensitivity towards and enjoyment of music through a variety of individual, group and whole class activities.
Music is generally planned and taught by class teachers throughout the school, with some specialist teaching in years 5 and 6, and occupies a 20 – 40 minute lesson in the timetable each week. This is augmented by visiting musicians, extra-curricular activities including the choir, daily singing in assembly and all children in KS2 are taught to play the recorder as part of their class music lesson.
Peripatetic music teachers visit the school each week providing tuition on violin, guitar, brass, woodwind and keyboard. All children are given opportunities to share their music making in assemblies and concerts.
We have good links with the local community, churches and Secondary School (William Howard), where musicians attend their annual ‘Music Week’ as well as other performances throughout the year.
