Music at Alston primary School






Music enables children to explore their thoughts and feelings through the handling and manipulation of sounds via the voice or other tuned or non- tuned musical instruments. In doing this, children can explore a deep history of music and relate musical experiences to the world around them. This will enrich other subject areas. Our aim at Alston Primary School is to provide stimulating opportunities involving a wide range of musical genres and the use of a variety of instruments, so that the children may appreciate and enjoy their own work and the work of others.

At Alston primary School, we have a wide range of pupils including differing ability levels and different backgrounds at home. The children will all be offered an exciting musical education which will promote equal opportunities for all. Music provides children with an alternative method of communication which will cater for all children, including those with limited spoken English.
