“A Griffin musician is an assured music maker and strong team player who is open to a range of musical experiences, is supportive and celebrates all cultures. They participate with enthusiasm and loyalty, demonstrating confidence and the curiosity to develop musically’ Griffin Schools Trust”
The National Curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music
- Be taught to sing, create and compose music
- Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated.
At Willow Brook Primary School the intention is that children gain a firm understanding of music through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres. Our objective at Willow Brook is to develop a curiosity for the subject, as well as an understanding and acceptance of the validity and importance of all types of music, and an unbiased respect for the role that music may wish to be expressed in any person’s life.
We are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community, and are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves in music, in a variety of different contexts.
It is our aim to offer an outstanding independent style music education for all students, predicated on breadth and excellence. We provide a rich programme of free extra-curricular activities. We create an involving and stimulating physical environment and, we have built a team of interesting and talented music specialists who are motivated to advance their own knowledge and skills as well as their pupils’ achievement. Through our provision we aim to teach young people to discover their talents and passions and to take their places in society through breadth of provision and diversity of ambition.
