Music is an essential part of the curriculum at BroomfieldsJunior School. We believe wholeheartedly that music has the power to change lives. The National Plan for Music Education sits at the heart of our curriculum. 

Music gives children and young people an opportunity to express themselves, to explore their creativity, to work hard at something, persevere and shine. These experiences and achievements stay with them and shape their lives.  Music is a cornerstone of the broad and balanced education that every child should receive. It touches hearts and minds, it celebrates and challenges, and it connects us and moves us.  National Plan for Music Education June 2022

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.


The school believes that high quality Music Education will engage and inspire our pupils to develop their love of music and their talent as musicians. This experience and achievement will then increase their self-confidence and creativity. All individuals will have opportunities to develop these skills in a wide range of teaching and learning activities.

Our intent in music is for children:

• To perform, listen to and review a wide range of music.

• To learn to sing and use their voices.

• To have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument.

• To be introduced to the possibilities created by Music Technology.

• To develop an understanding of the terminology used within all music, which are referred to as the elements of music: pitch, timbre, dynamics, dynamics, tempo, texture, structure and musical notation.


  • Children will participate in a range of classroom activities, which develop the skills they use across year 3 to 6.
  • Children will have a weekly 50 minute music lesson alongside additional music activities such as whole school singing assembly and other listening opportunities throughout the school week.
  • Children will develop confidence in performing, either using their voices or a musical instrument.
  • Children will be given opportunities to access a wide range of musical genres; they will be confident about talking and evaluating this music, recognising that different music appeals to different people. 
  • Children will be given the opportunity to learn a musical instrument.
  • Children will develop confidence as musicians.


The teaching within school will be supplemented via access to Accent (the Warrington and Halton Music Hub). This will include:

Y3: Ukulele

Y4: Taiko Drumming

Y5: Gospel Singing

Y6: Brass project


Each of these activities will include an element of performance to the rest of the school, at local Concerts, or for a wider audience such as Music Festivals organised across the authority.


All children will participate in quality music sessions across the year. These may be linked to topics and other areas of the Curriculum, or taught as stand alone lessons. All music should be identified on each Year Group’s Long Term and Medium Term Plans. The Sing Up Scheme of Work has clear sequences of lessons, lesson objectives and outlines, along with the resources needed to teach them; this will enable all members of staff (including non-specialists) to deliver well-planned quality lessons, with appropriate differentiation.
