Our Aims:

At Southwood we value music education because it is a unique form of communication and expression.

We aim to develop sensitivity and creative ability in all pupils.

We seek to engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music, to increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.


At Southwood Primary School we aim to provide:


  • A worthwhile and enjoyable musical experience through active listening and participation
  • Access to instrumental learning opportunities
  • Opportunities to develop musical knowledge, concepts, skills and evoke a creative response to music through experiencing and experimenting with sound through eg listening, appraising, performance, singing and composing
  • Opportunities to become aware of musical traditions and cultural similarities and differences
  • Awareness that music can support the development of our wider school ‘Core Values’ such as sharing, communication, participation, co-operation, self-esteem, self-image, decision making, creativity, respect for own and other cultures.
