'Let your light shine' Matthew 5:16
Music Vision Statement
At Hawkesley Church Primary Academy, Music lies at the heart of our learning community and is an important factor which flows throughout every pupil’s learning journey. It is our belief that the children we serve should ‘Let your light shine’ (Matthew, 5:16), enabling the best of themselves to glow from within and be shared proudly with others.
It is our intention to provide every pupil with the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument with confidence by the times they leave Year 6. They will be taught by experts in their art, who will guide them through the steps of becoming a skilled musician. Through regular, positive, group-learning experiences – taught alongside baseline music theory – the children will explore musical curiosities. By teaching composition and performance, children will be encouraged to pursue individual interests and experiment with artistic, creative and personal expression. As a Church school, our collective worships are joyous occasions of celebration and reflection. ‘Watching over one another in love’, we worship and praise the faith in song, uniting us as a collective to celebrate the life of the Almighty Lord.
It is our vision – through the teaching of Music, with opportunities to learn, create, perform, worship and celebrate – that the children of Hawkesley Church Primary Academy experience the joys of Music through artistic expression and individual interpretation; the Bible says, ‘Let everybody enjoy the free liberty of thinking for himself’.
