Bishops Canning CofE Primary School & Pre School


Our Intent, Implementation and Impact: 

At Bishops Cannings Primary School, we provide children with a fun, inspiring and an inclusive music curriculum. We aim to:

  • to follow the specifications of the National Curriculum; providing a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum and ensuring the progressive development of musical concepts, knowledge and skills.
  • give the opportunity to participate in extra-curricular music activities.
  • build confidence, positive attitudes and enthusiasm towards all different aspects of music.
  • listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, cultures, styles and traditions.
  • allow children to sing and use their voices to create different effects.
  • plan lessons for creating and composing music, both on their own and with others.
  • give children an opportunity to learn a musical instrument
  • help our pupils to learn to read some musical notation
  • use a range of musical vocabulary and understand what the musical elements are (Pulse, beat, metre, rhythm, pitch, melody, tempo, dynamics, timbre, texture and structure.)
  • let children make judgements and express personal preferences about the quality and style of music
  • take part in performances with an awareness of audience.


At Bishops Cannings Primary School, we want the children in our school to be inspired and excited about the world around us and enjoy investigating the effects of the past, present and future upon our diverse school and the wider community.

We are committed to embracing the cultural diversity of our school and community. Through providing regular opportunities to inspire our children to achieve and enjoy music, art and culture. These in turn will develop confidence and self esteem and prepare them for our challenging world.

Over the coming terms, we are hoping to develop lots of exciting opportunities through our arts and humanities subjects. In doing so, we are hoping to develop our multi-cultural understanding and knowledge and so further develop understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
