Oxon CE Primary School


Music lessons are an important feature of the school curriculum.  They allow children the opportunity to make and respond to music and to develop skills, attitudes and attributes that can support learning in other subject areas for example listening skills, the ability to concentrate, creativity, intuition, aesthetic sensitivity, perseverance, self-confidence and sensitivity towards others.

Classes are taught by the class teachers and by additional music specialists employed by the school.  Lessons may take place in the classroom or our dedicated music rooms.

Live music experiences are incorporated in the children’s experience whenever possible. These include visitors to the school, class and year group visits, and the opportunity for children to participate in performances through extra-curricular activities.

Whole class instrument teaching takes place in Years 3 and 4 (recorders) and Years 5 and 6 (ukuleles).  Each class spends alternate half terms learning the instrument, with the other half term on the general music curriculum.

A number of children in Key Stage 2 also receive instrumental tuition from the peripatetic music service.  Additional information about this can be obtained from the school office school.
