At All Saints’, we believe that every child should receive high quality musical experiences from a variety of cultures and traditions, and that music should play an integral part in our school life and worship.
Every child will have the chance to learn an instrument and develop their voice, with a variety of opportunities to perform and compose. The music curriculum often reflects class topics, in order to enhance the pupils’ learning, and enrichment opportunities are organised with Peterborough Music Hub, so that pupils experience live performances and professional musicians.
In music, creativity is encouraged, and the environment allows every child to achieve and be confident that they can have a go and express themselves.
“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning”
School Choir Recording
This recording of ‘You are my Brother’ was specially recorded for the commissioning service of our new Chaplain, Sarah Burke.
As children are still unable to sing with others from different classes, due to the current situation, 26 of our Key Stage 2 pupils were recorded individually at school, and then edited together by Miss Evans. Here is the finished recording:
