Grindleton C. E. Primary School believes that music is an important element in the development of the pupils and we therefore aim to provide a range of musical experiences for them. We value music because it is a powerful and unique form of communication that can change the way pupils feel, think and act. It allows personal expression and can play an important part in the personal development of an individual. Music reflects our culture and society and so the teaching and learning of music enables our children to better understand the world in which they live. We provide opportunities for children to create, play, perform and enjoy listening to music, to develop skills and appreciate a wide variety of musical forms.
