Music Intent Statement
Music can be separated into three different disciplines: Performing music, Composing music and Listening & Appraising music. The three strands of Music are taught and developed together which aims to build skills that students can draw upon to fulfil their potential in music, in the wider context of school life and beyond.
At APS, the music curriculum has been set up to offer each year group an opportunity to develop the three strands of music and these are integral in all topics to prepare them for study of music at KS4. Listening, Performing and composing elements feature in all topics and also the reading of text and extended writing opportunities are embedded into schemes too.
Our intent is to develop skills such as team work, organisation, responsibility, cultural history, listening skills, confidence, social skills, discipline, self-evaluation and interpersonal skills. These skills are essential and are embedded in schemes. This allows skills to be honed through a broad range of topics at KS3 which in turn, prepares them for KS4.
