At St Leonard’s Lower School, we are growing and learning together with God’s Love and our Christian values are embedded in all that we do.
We recognise that every child is a unique individual within God’s creation and it is our aim is to provide learning opportunities that enable our children to develop deep roots to enable them to flourish and succeed.
Our Music curriculum is ambitious and inclusive for all, enabling each child to learn and develop the skills and knowledge they need to thrive. It is a relevant, creative, exciting and challenging curriculum planned to support all learners to achieve their full potential, to know more and remember more, and to be prepared for their next steps in learning.
Our aim is to promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding through appropriate curricular opportunities with particular reference to equality and diversity.
We believe that the development of musical skills is important to the wellbeing of our children and the creation of balanced young people. We encourage enjoyment and understanding of music through listening, composing and performing. Children are taught a wide range of songs and introduced to a variety of instruments.
We work closely with Bedfordshire's Inspiring Music service, who provide KS2 whole class instrumental tuition (recorder, ocarina, ukelele), support and CPD and we use the Charanga scheme of work to support high quality music teaching and to ensure progression of skills throughout the school.
The children sing daily in collective worship. We produce a Harvest, Christmas and Easter musical each year and participate in local and national musical events when possible. We run extra curricular clubs including a choir and provide piano tuition during school time. Rocksteady Music School also offers children the opportunity to become part of a band and perform to an audience. (Charges apply)
