High quality music education enables life-long participation in, and enjoyment of, music, as well as well as underpinning excellence and understanding across all other subject areas.
Here at Fairfield we recognise the importance of providing a rich and exciting music curriculum for our children. Music actively plays an important role in the academic and social development of children and as such is given the importance it deserves.
Each child is taught our music curriculum by a dedicated music specialist teacher which involves listening, composing and performing through the Charanga music scheme. Singing takes place throughout the school by way of: whole class/whole school teaching, annual production/nativity and after school clubs with children regularly performing to audiences - peers and parents/carers as well as external performances at venues such as The Brindley and Liverpool Echo Arena.
In addition to this we are working closely with Warrington Music Hub Services and Schools Music Service who provide us with peripatetic music specialists to teach individual instrumental lessons.
This year, we are very proud to have been successful in our application for the Schools Music Ambassador award by The Warrington Music Hub in recognition of our commitment and success in the teaching and learning of music here at Fairfield Primary School.
Here are some examples of how our children are enjoying their engagement with music and the arts:
