Art, Music and Design Technology

We value our children having opportunities to develop and demonstrate their creativity, whilst exploring the breadth and depth of the national curriculum. Through established and meaningful links with professionals both inside and outside of our school, we hope that our children will foster lifelong skills, confidence and passion within the creative arts and understand how every day and exceptional creativity can shape the world.

Curriculum Maestro Progression in Design Technology



We follow the Leicestershire Music Service Music Scheme of Work. This is fully sequenced scheme which runs through the school and covers all of the core elements of the music curriculum. In Year 5, we underpin this knowledge with a weekly whole class session from the Leicestershire Music. This year, we are learning steel pans...and they sound amazing!


Children from Year 2 upwards also have the opportunity to learn an instrument with either individual or small group lessons, taught by our peripatetic teacher Miss Kimberley. At the moment, we have children learning recorder, flute and clarinet.
