Our Pupils’ perspective

In Music, we learn about different instruments and how to create our own music.


Subject Leader

Miss O'Connell is our music subject lead in school. She has a real passion and interest in music. 

Miss O'Connell believes that music is an opportunity for children to express themselves and their creativity through the power of music. She enjoys listening to all types of music from all genres and composers and particularly enjoys teaching singing throughout the school. Her favourite part of a music lesson is when children are composing their own music and being creative. 


Subject Intent

At our school, we believe that, through the subject of music, we can nurture our pupils' talents and open minds by exploring music from different cultures and genres. A respect for the musical preferences and talents of others enables us to encourage excellence. Through a love of music, we believe our children can grow in confidence and become musicians.

At St. Luke and St. Philip's, music is recognised as a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. We believe 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 (National Curriculum 2014).
