We see music as a form of communication and understand that it can speak a different language to each and every one of us.
We embrace musical opportunities as not only a way to foster a love of music and promote the enjoyment of participation and performance for all but, also to promote and provide further opportunities to boost school improvement, improve learning skills, foster team work, build life skills, underpin better behaviour, encourage creativity and then utilise all of these skills as an educational building block. Pupils are given the opportunity to excel and understand the power of music, and through high quality teaching and learning as well as a fully engaging curriculum and enrichment opportunities, pupils are able to move forward with a strong understanding of themselves and others.
They can realise that music is not only fun but that it is for life. We use the Cumbria Music Service to provide opportunities for children such as Musical Mondays and the Charanga Musical School.
