Music Intent


At Saint Patrick’s, we recognise that music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. We provide all children with an engaging and inspiring education in music that develops their love of music and their talent as musicians.


Music is an ideal conduit for developing the children’s self-confidence, creativity, sense of achievement and awareness of their cultural roots. By performing, reviewing and evaluating music from a range of historical periods and cultures, the children develop their cultural capital. They learn to sing, use their voices and compose their own music. They work both independently and as part of a group. By teaching them the elements of music, the children understand how music can be manipulated for different purposes and the role technology can play. By KS2, the children are also given the opportunity to learn a musical instrument at a higher level.


We recognise the pivotal role of music in underpinning other aspects of the curriculum, particularly RE. Music contributes to our vibrant Catholic life as singing and music play a vital role in prayer and adding a layer to vibrancy and joy to our Christian celebrations, including masses, Nativities and liturgies.


Children have the opportunity to showcase their talents in class assemblies and during class projects. To enhance cultural capital, we offer visits by musicians and carry out visits to venues such as the local Sheffield theatres.
