Music at Stanley St Peter's
Our music curriculum aims to provide all pupils with a high quality music education which engages and inspires children to develop a life-long love of music, increases their self-confidence, creativity and imagination, and provides opportunities for self-expression and a sense of personal achievement . Children participate in a wide range of activities to develop their talents in all aspects of music including rhythm work, instrumental skills, composition, singing and appreciation.
We believe that opportunities for children to play in small groups or ensemble also helps to foster essential life skills such as co-operation, mutual support, self discipline and commitment.
Music plays an important role in helping children to feel part of a community. We organise and collaborate in projects to enable children to share their musical skills at different events both inside and outside of school.
We also make use of the services on offer from Wakefield Music Services (WMS) which is the lead organisation for the Wakefield Music Education Hub (WMEH) and has been providing quality inclusive music teaching and opportunities to the young people in Wakefield since 1974. Our children have the opportunity to access private and small group tuition provided by WMS for a reasonable fee. For more information regarding this, please speak to your child's class teacher.
