At Springfield Academy, we intend to engage and inspire our pupils to develop a life-long love of music, explore creativity and promote self-expression through compositions, critical listening and performances. We hope to foster a school culture of music appreciation by making music an enjoyable learning experience through discrete lessons, extra-curricular activities and whole school singing assemblies. By providing our children with a range of opportunities to perform and compose their own and others’ music, we aim to increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. Music should be available for every pupil to experience and enjoy, so by the end of their primary school education, all of our children at Springfield will have spent time learning and practising at least two different musical instruments in depth. Our curriculum ensures that all children have the opportunity to experience live-music as both spectators and performers. 

The aim of our Music curriculum is to develop pupils who:

  • Can sing and use their voices individually and as a group
  • Create and compose music on their own and with others
  • Have opportunities to learn musical instruments
  • Use technology appropriately when composing
  • Take part in performances with an awareness of audience
  • Listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions
  • Enjoy and have an appreciation of a range of styles of music, including music from well-known musicians and composers
  • Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated
  • Use and understand musical features, including in their own compositions
