Music in School

Music is led on Monday afternoons by our appointed music specialist Mr Burton. All pupils from Year 1-Year 6 will access this specialist training weekly. During these lessons pupils are taught to sing and play musically with confidence.Our music curriculum engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and their talents as musicians, increasing their self confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.


Mr Burton will also be providing additional teaching and enrichment for a school choir from September 2017. This will be during lunchtimes on Mondays for30 minutes.

Wider Musical Opportunities

To ensure we provide a rich, varied and exciting music curriculum  we work with specialist teachers  to ensure at least one year group has the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument.



We are currently working with Nottingham Music Hub to provide 1 hour of guitar lessons for years 4 & 5 on alternate weeks. Mr Marshall teaches us all the skills to play the guitar.











After School Provision


Last year we started to provide additional guitar sessions after school with Mr. Bickerstaffe from True Music. This has been very popular and the children are making great progress. We will be continued to provide additional guitar (and possibly ukulele) sessions after school throughout the year2015-2016.
