At Rushall Primary, the teaching and learning of Music will play a vital role in improving mental well-being and developing self-esteem, self-discipline and creativity. The skills involved in playing, composing and listening to different styles of music will help our children develop memory, co-ordination and resilience. Children will learn, sing and play songs to celebrate different cultures.

Through an inspiring curriculum of Music, we offer our children a wide range of experiences that will help to prepare them for Music beyond Rushall- giving them the skills to continue their passion for music throughout their school career and beyond. Children will learn to play a brass instrument (within Year 4 and up to Year 6), alongside a variety of other instruments throughout their time at Rushall. Children at Rushall will be given numerous opportunities to perform in a variety of settings, pushing boundaries and taking risks to allow them to experience a sense of achievement and pride.

Our Aims:

  • To provide opportunities for every child to express their thoughts and feelings through music.
  • To ensure that every child has the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument.
  • To teach children about a range of cultures through music, and ensure sound knowledge of music history.
  • To provide outstanding teaching that reaches every child, ensuring individual talents and abilities are nurtured and encouraged from the earliest possible point.
  • To develop communication and social skills through learning Makaton songs.
  • To promote enjoyment and aid memory in all areas of the curriculum through singing.
  • To promote enrichment opportunities and parental engagement through music.

Our Music lead is Miss Philippa Mills
