Henbury Court Primary Academy


Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high- quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.’

At Henbury Court, we believe children deserve a broad and ambitious music curriculum which is both rich in skills and knowledge. We hope to foster a life-long love of music within every child by encouraging them to not only listen and respond to a diverse range of music styles and genres but to find their voices and  become singers, performers and composers too.

 As children progress through the school, they will increasingly understand and explore how music is created and communicated through the interrelated dimensions of music: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture and structure.

We will help them build the foundations for a lifelong appreciation of, and participation in, the power of making music.
