"Music is the last true voice of the human spirit. It can go beyond language, beyond age, and beyond colour straight to the mind and heart of all people."
Ben Harper - American musician
Music: Our Intent for the subject.
At Walter Evans, our music curriculum intends to inspire creativity, self-expression and encourages our children on their musical journeys to develop their love of music and their talent as musicians. We hope to foster a life-long love of music by exposing them to diverse musical experiences and igniting a passion for music to equip children with the attitudes, language, knowledge and skills required for their transition to KS3. Our intention is that children gain a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions and musical genres.
Our school vision is rooted in the Christian faith. As a proud Church of England school, our vision is underpinned by the Church of England’s vision for education. This vision identifies four interlinking aims for all our pupils and, at its heart, lies LOVE (Luke 10:27).
At Walter Evans we believe in a broad and balanced curriculum where all subjects are valued. A broad and balanced curriculum will equip our children with a breadth of knowledge and skills in all areas of the curriculum. We aim for our pupils to ‘Persevere, be curious and inspired through their learning’.
