Intent, Implementation & Impact
|At Dulverton, we aim to provide all children with accessible music lessons and provisions, to support every child’s creative development. We encourage children to develop and extend their performing, composing, appraising and listening skills through the teaching of music by our specialist teacher. We use and adapt the Charanga scheme to provide a tailored musical curriculum to suit the needs of the children here at Dulverton, whilst teaching them to play instruments such as recorder, ekele and piano. Children also have the opportunity to further their musical development through peripatetic tuition by a specialist music teacher.|
The way in which we facilitate our intent and ensure children are receiving the best quality music tuition include:
The National Curriculum for music aims to ensure all pupils:
And children in KS2 will be taught to:
As well as structuring the teaching of music to ensure we are providing the children with the best musical education possible, we are proud to offer extra musical activities.
The quality of learning in Music is evaluated through reflecting, rewinding and replaying key skills at the end of each year. Each unit of work is assessed by the music specialist to establish the success of taught subject knowledge. Lesson observations and pupil voice also help us to evaluate the attainment and engagement in music lessons. Children’s understanding can be shown through in class performances, instrumental practise and compositions.
Children receive a widely accessible Music curriculum here at Dulverton, which encourages them to develop their own musical expression. They are exposed to a variety of musically inclined and memorable experiences.
