Music statement of intent  

By the time they leave Northgate we aim for our children to; 

Have experienced  a wide range of musical genres from different cultures and practically explore rhythm and beat using instruments/ voices to express themselves. 


Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. We provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music; and to develop the skills to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms. 

The aims of music teaching are to enable all children to: 

  • Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions. Drawing in on the works of great composers and musicians. 
  • Learn to sing and use their voices.  
  • Encourage the use of technology for music.  
  • Create and compose music individually and in small groups. 
  • Understand and explore how music is created.
