At Stanton Primary School, we embrace music. We thrive on giving children the opportunity to experiment with a wide variety of both instruments and music. We believe that everyone can be musical and that it isn't just for 'musical people'; this ethos runs through our music lessons and throughout the school. We put on amazing performances at the end of each term, of which all our children, staff and parents are incredibly proud.
We are incredibly lucky to have our own music room. This is where our music lessons take place so the children can really experiment with the musical instruments available to them.
We are also very proud of the music education we can provide our children. In Year 4, our children are taught by a external music teacher (this year it is the violin) in which they are taught to play the instrument along with music theory. We also have an external music teacher in each week who teaches small groups or individuals (clarinet in year 5 and flute in year 6). As part of the Thurston Partnership, we also have access to a music specialist from Thurston Community College who teacher Years 5 and 6 once a week.
