In order to achieve our whole school intent, we have identified 3 Golden Threads that weave through our curriculum and underpin everything we do. This means that in delivering our curriculum we are embedding our school Christian Values, developing knowledge and skills progressively over time with an ambitious and aspiring curriculum whilst immersing our children in language rich teaching.

At Forest and Sandridge we value music because it is a powerful and unique form of communication that can change and impact the way children feel, think and act. We believe that teaching music helps the body and the mind work together. Exposing children to music during early development helps them to learn the sounds and meanings of words. Dancing to music helps children build motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to develop their musical potential and we aim to nurture and encourage musical development across the school so they can flourish musically.

During their time at Forest and Sandridge we aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • Produce creative work, exploring their ideas, recording and performing their experiences.
  • Become proficient in expressing themselves through music.
  • Evaluate and analyse different genres of music.
  • Know about great musicians and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
  • Can use subject specific vocabulary to 'talk like a musician' to communicate their observations and preferences through language of evaluation.
