Music Curriculum Intent


At Thorpe Primary School our vision for music is to develop creativity, confidence and emotional well-being. We want children to be exposed to and learn to love different styles of music to engage and inspire them. We also aim to help the children to develop a critical engagement with music allowing them to compose, and listen with discrimination.


  • Through our teaching in music, we want to enable children to perform, compose and evaluate in line with the KS1 and KS2 National Curriculum.
  • Build the children's confidence to enable them to perform in small groups and eventually to larger ones, using their voices or instruments.
  • As they progress through school, composing becomes an important element of their musical education, allowing them to express their own ideas and creativity.
  • Enable the children to evaluate their own work and that of others, highlighting their own preferences and unique style.
  • Create opportunities for every child to access a range of musical outlets, encouraging children to push themselves to access new experiences.
