The intent of our Music curriculum is to ensure that pupils experience a wide breadth of study and enquire about an ambitious body of knowledge stored in their long term memory, which in turn will prepare them for future learning and life, including future careers. The breadth of our Music curriculum is adapted to our beliefs about the needs of our pupils and our values as a school. We have agreed that within our Music curriculum:

  • leaders take on or construct a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to give all learners, particularly the most disadvantaged and those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) or high needs, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life
  • the provider’s curriculum is coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge and skills for future learning and employment
  • the provider has the same academic, technical or vocational ambitions for almost all learners. Where this is not practical – for example, for some learners with high levels of SEND – its curriculum is designed to be ambitious and to meet their needs
  • learners study the full curriculum. Providers ensure this by teaching a full range of subjects for as long as possible, ‘specialising’ only when necessary

Welton children need:

  • Greater opportunities to encounter and participate in music within the local community
  • To appreciate the subject through aspirational visitors, role models and events for future music related careers
