At Mitcheldean Primary School we believe that music and singing has an important role within the curriculum promoting positive well-being, enjoyment , self confidence and a sense of community. We are a singing school and sing every day which we feel is spiritually uplifting for everyone.
Music is well-established in our school and we follow our EPIC music vision - Enjoy, Perform and Participate, Inspire and be Inspired, Create and Compose.
We aim to provide a range of musical opportunities which children Enjoy so they are motivated and engaged. We want children to develop a range of musical skills - singing and playing different tuned and unturned instruments, building their self-confidence and self-esteem to Perform and participate. We want our children to Inspire others when they perform, and be Inspired by others when they demonstrate their musical skills so they are developing a love of music by listening and appreciating different types of music and be inspired to learn an instrument themselves. Through exposure to a range of musicians and music from across the world we hope to inspire children about the multicultural world we live, a key driver within our context. We encourage our children to Create and compose within music to illustrate that there are no limits to what they can achieve.
