Our music Curriculum is planned to demonstrate progression and build-on and embed key skills. We focus on progression of knowledge and skills in the different musical components and teaching of vocabulary also forms part of the units of work. If children are achieving the knowledge and skills in lessons, then they are deemed to be making good progress. We measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods:

  •          Pupil discussions and interviewing the pupils about their learning (pupil voice).
  •          Subject Leader monitoring of music lesson delivery.
  •          Photo and video evidence of the pupils practical learning.
  •          Level of uptake of our music extra-curricular sessions.

Upon leaving The Avenue, our children will have been exposed to and experienced a wide range of musical opportunities. This will allow them to progress into KS3 with a solid foundation of musical skills and above all, having enjoyed music during their time here.
