Curriculum Intent Statement for Music
At Porthleven Primary School, we value music because it is a powerful and unique art form. Music boosts creativity and supports development in social skills, self-discipline and confidence. We provide a music curriculum where children develop a solid understanding of the interrelated dimensions of music through the skills of performing, composing and appraising. We ensure children experience a range of classical, rock, folk, jazz and popular music taken from different times and cultures. All pupils experience tuned musical instrument teaching and children Y3-6 are offered the opportunity to build on these with additional instrumental lessons in school time (privately or in small groups), including financial support for Pupil Premium children. Our wider curriculum offer includes opportunities for pupils to take part in extra-curricular musical groups including: choir, recorders, competitions and ensemble groups
