Phoenix Primary School ‘Where We Rise to the Challenge’

Intent, Implementation and Impact

Intent:

 

Music at Phoenix Primary School aims to:

 

  • Give every child the opportunity to experience enjoyment through a variety of musical activities and to respond to musical emotions
  • Develop a child’s understanding of music through these activities
  • Help children of all abilities develop positive attitudes and to experience success and satisfaction in music.
  • Develop social skills through co-operation with others in the shared experience of music making.
  • Develop an understanding of musical traditions and enhance performance skills by learning and performing music in a variety of cultures.
  • Give children the opportunity to perform music both vocally and with instruments
  • Encourage the children to explore a wide range of sounds
  • Give them the opportunity to compose music and express their ideas and feelings through music
  • Experience listening to music of a variety of styles and cultures
  • Develop a child’s appreciation of the richness of our musical heritage 
  • Encourage children to express ideas and opinions about music

 

  • Give each child the opportunity to develop their musical talents
  • Develop an appropriate vocabulary to help them understand and discuss their own work and that of others

 

Implementation:

To ensure high standards of teaching and learning in Music, we implement a curriculum that is progressive, diverse and inclusive from Early Years to KS2.  Music is taught in each class every week for thirty minutes by the Music co-ordinator.

 

The Music curriculum at Phoenix Primary School is based upon the new Model Music Curriculum in England, which provides a broad framework and outlines the knowledge and skills taught.  The Music teacher plans lessons for every class using the progression of knowledge and skills documents and curriculum map. We ensure a diverse curriculum that promotes musicians and composers from diverse communities that represent the communities present within our school. Every year group studies a new topic each half term. The Music teacher assesses children’s prior knowledge and understanding to ensure the work planned is pitched at the correct level.  A variety of teaching approaches are used based on the teacher’s judgement.

 

Special Educational Needs Disability (SEND) / EAL/Pupil Premium / Higher Attainers

 

All children will have Quality First Teaching. Any children with identified SEND or in receipt of pupil premium funding may have work additional to and different from their peers in order to access the curriculum dependent upon their needs. As well as this, our school offers a demanding and varied curriculum, providing children with a range of opportunities in order for them to reach their full potential and consistently achieve highly from their starting points.

 

Impact

 

The Music subject leader will continually monitor the impact Music teaching is having on the children’s learning through work scrutinies and formative assessment to ensure the progress of knowledge and skills is being taught.  They will also ensure the knowledge taught is retained by the children and continually revisited and that the learners are able to apply the skills they have been taught to a variety of different settings, showing independence with their learning.
