Saint Peter's CatholicVoluntary Academy


God is at the heart of our school


At St Peter’s we try to include music into school life as much as possible. The children, ordinarily would regularly sing during whole school assemblies and many teachers use songs related to topic work.


In music lessons, children are encouraged to use a variety of different sources to create sound including everyday objects, junk, their voices and bodies and traditional musical instruments. We want the children to have creative choice with their music making and so allow them the opportunity to try these different variations. We would like our children to be motivated, engaged and learning about music in an active and focussed way. 


At St Peter's we follow the Kapow scheme of work for our music lessons. This programme aligns with the modern music curriculum and is authored by primary music specialists. There is a full scheme of work offering inspiring cross-curricular themes and a clear progression of learning from Reception to Year 6. The skills taught include 

  • Performing
  • Listening
  • Composing
  • Inter-related dimensions of music: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure


Due to current restrictions with regard to singing, St Peter's does not currently have a school choir. However, as this has been a huge attraction to pupils and staff in the past, we would hope to reinstate this at some point in the future - Government policy permitting.
