Buckton Fields Primary School provides a whole-school music curriculum to promote an opportunity for children to express their creativity and develop their confidence. Our curriculum progresses each year within these main musical skills: Perform, Compose, Explore and Listen, Reflect and Appraise. During these areas, the children’s knowledge will develop each year to include new musical terminology and techniques to help their musical understanding mature alongside their musical ability.

Each year, the children will have the opportunity to perform their music and celebrate their learning with family and friends through assemblies.



In order for our curriculum to build on current knowledge and develop the children’s skills, it has been organised into learning objectives for each year group within the skills of:


Compose and Explore

Listen, Reflect and Appraise

Each objective builds on the previous years by developing the skill’s complexity and application, whilst each year group will introduce new knowledge and concepts to ensure the children’s musical experiences broaden over their time at Buckton Fields. We enrich children’s musical experiences through additional musical workshops like our Shakespeare workshops where we provide opportunities to apply their skills and develop their musical talents further.

The curriculum is taught by passionate teachers who understand the importance music can also play in a child’s Wellbeing and who enjoy providing the opportunity for children to join together to develop their creativity and self-confidence.

Furthermore, our progressive skill-based curriculum enables teachers to further challenge or support children to ensure every child can achieve and make progress in their musical education.



Our music curriculum encourages children at Buckton Fields to explore creatively by immersing them in an environment that promotes a love and importance of music. We aim for children to understand the importance of music and its positive impact it can have on individuals and communities.

We aspire for our children to develop a creative edge through experiences that promote the importance of practicing skills and demonstrating self-discipline, developing ideas and working collaboratively whilst offering opportunities for individual flare and accomplishment.
