At St Philip’s, children are surrounded and immersed in music throughout the curriculum. As well as being taught music through explicit lessons delivered by a specialist music teacher, the children are exposed to music throughout the school day. Through the dance curriculum, children are taught how to move and listen to music; this is also achieved during the 5-a-day videos which are used daily. St Philip’s students are taught how to sing a variety of secular and non-secular songs and hymns during a weekly Singing Collective Worship which build up to each child performing a song as a phase at our end of term celebrations.
Our extra-curricular opportunities allow those who want to, to broaden their music education even further. We are fortunate to have a variety of specialist music teachers deliver individual and group instrumental lessons to those who want. The yearly trip to the Young Voices at the O2 arena in London is always a success. The students prepare for this in KS2 choir; students are coached in two-part harmonies as well as other styles of singing.
As we begin to external visitors to school again, we are reestablishing our in school provision of instrumental lessons. The instrumental lessons currently on offer are:
- Piano - Deb Unitt
If you would like your child to recieve instrumental lessons in school, please contact the school office using email@example.com who will direct your email to the correct person.
We continue to review the Covid-19 safety guidelines and seek to be able to provide further instrumental lessons in school when this becomes possible.
