Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. Our high quality music education at JRS, engages and inspires all pupils, including those with SEND, to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians. This in turn increases their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, play and discuss Music with increasing technical vocabulary.

Within our school we follow a scheme called Charanga Musical School Units of Work. These units enable children to understand musical concepts through a repetition-based approach to learning. Learning about the same musical concept through different musical activities enables a more secure, deeper learning and mastery of musical skills.

In Year 3 all children learn an instrument for a term.

At JRS we are also lucky to work with two external companies who offer a range of paid lessons for vocal lessons, DJ lessons and in a variety of different instruments alongside our own Music teaching.
