Intent statement for Music


We can be musicians


At St Matthew’s C of E Primary, our intention is that children gain a firm understanding of what music is and how it is created through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a wide variety of cultures, historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres. We want to develop a curiosity for the subject, as well as an understanding and respect for a wide variety of music. We are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community, and are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves in music, in a variety of different contexts.


We are singers; we are performers; we are composers; we are listeners; we are reviewers.
