Music is a key part of the curriculum at St Bart’s. Every child has access to at least 45 minutes of quality music tuition every week. This is made up of a 30 minute class music lesson and a 15 minute whole school singing praise.
In class, children learn from the Charanga scheme of work and have access to a range of tuned and untuned instruments. Music is also encouraged across all other subjects, with a bank of over 150 theme based songs to help in the education of other subjects. Extra-curricular activities are also encouraged, with the school having a choir and keyboard club, as well as educational trips to watch concerts and join in with large school based ensembles.
