Our Music Curriculum


At Sacred Heart RC Primary we us the Charanga Musical School Scheme.  The Scheme supports all the requirements of the national curriculum.

This Scheme uses an integrated, practical, exploratory and child-led approach to musical learning.

Charanga Musical School Units of Work enable children to understand musical concepts through a repetition-based approach to learning. Learning about the same musical concept through different musical activities enables a more secure, deeper learning and mastery of musical skills. 

Music is essentially a practical subject. Children are encouraged to sing, compose and work creatively with sound. Through active listening, pupils’ awareness, understanding and appreciation of a wide variety of music are developed.

The school provides opportunities for children to take part in a wide range of musical activities and performances.

Music is taught by specialist teacher's as well as class teacher in all year groups.

We encourage and sign children to look at the  Lancashire Music Service who run a network of music centres throughout the County where young musicians of all levels of experience can play together in bands and ensembles and sing in choirs, offering an ideal progression route from Whole Class Ensemble Tuition alongside opportunities for more advanced students.
