Vision for The Arts at Holy Family
At The Holy Family School, we aim to make music an enjoyable experience for pupils of all abilities. As a vehicle for personal expression it promotes emotional development, encourages creativity and thereby makes a valuable contribution to the wider curriculum; it builds self respect and supports developing self control and positive social attitudes. We strive to cultivate a real enjoyment of music by supporting and encouraging all children to achieve their full potential.
Music is an important part of our daily worship and the children know, and sing with enthusiasm, a wide variety of hymns and sacred songs.
In Key Stage 2 there is the opportunity to learn piano, recorder, violin and clarinet with specialist teachers who offer 1:1 tuition.
