Staplegrove Church School

'That they may have life, life in all its fullness' John 10:10


“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the               mind, flight to the imagination,

                   and life to everything.”

                             – Plato

At Staplegrove, our Music curriculum aims to provide our children with many opportunities to explore and experiment with music. We strive to provide them with a broad knowledge of the history and principles of music, whilst supporting and encouraging them to develop their own unique relationship with it. We recognise Somerset's rich historical and present day musical community and aim to immerse our children into that culture, whist celebrating the diversity of the wider and wonderful world of music!  

We have recently signed up to follow the Charanga Musical School scheme for our music curriculum. Charanga Musical School is an award-winning, modern-day resource for primary music. It includes a complete scheme to teach the national curriculum for music and offers a growing library of songs, topics, instrument courses and creative apps. We are at the very beginning of our Charanga journey, but are very much looking forward to using it and sharing what we learn. The exciting news is that very soon we will be able to share the scheme's home learning hub, YUMU with your child so that they can continue their musical learning journey at home.
