At St. Luke’s Church of England Primary School, the intention is that children develop musicality through our three main strands; singing, performance and composition and composers. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum, and ensuring the progressive development of musical concepts, knowledge and skills. Children will listen, sing, play instruments, evaluate and compose across a range of musical genres and musical styles. We encourage all children to participate in a variety of musical experiences, through which we aim to build up their love of music, self- confidence and achievement.


‘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.’  National Curriculum, 2021.

Strengths & Evaulation of Music

The new planning approach and whole school curriculum design, has supported the recent improvement in planning for effective teaching and learning in music. A progressive skills and knowledge based curriculum is being delivered across the school with increased consistency since the last inspection.


Pupils are accessing a balanced music curriculum based on the three elements of singing, performance and composers and composition; there is a heavier emphasis on composition and composers which was identified as an area for development through pupil voice.


Pupils continue to attain well in music across all year groups, with 85% below the lowest attainment at Age Related Expectation or above. To address the limited percentage of pupils achieving Greater Depth in music, each unit of teaching has a purposeful outcome which is used as an assessment tool alongside the end of unit assessment sheets.
