"Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. 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. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon." (National Curriculum)
At St Jude's we have music specialists who lead music lessons for all KS1 and KS2 classes, and lead singing practice one a week.
Extra Music Provision
The music specialists also offer peripatetic music lessons to individual children as requested by the parent. They teach a range of musical instruments.
Children also have the opportunity to sign up for tuition to play in a rock band.
