We aim for our Music curriculum to:
At King’s Sutton we pride ourselves in the quality of our singing in our school. Singing is important in our school and everyone has the opportunity to practise a variety of songs in our weekly Singing Assembly. Key Stage 1 choir regularly sing to various groups in the village whilst Key Stage 2 take part in local and regional events such as the Rotary Club's ‘Children Singing for Children Concert' and ‘District Carols'.
Our link with peripatetic teachers from NMPAT - Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust allow us to offer small group tuition of strings, (violin, cello and guitar), and piano. These are offered in Periods of 11 weeks for children in Year 2 upwards and currently cost £73.50 per period.
First Access consists of 10 weeks of FREE lessons to one whole year group which are funded through the Government’s National Music Plan. The main objective of the plan is to give every child the opportunity to learn a musical instrument for at least one term during their time in Key Stage 2. Funding support for the First Access projects comes from Arts Council England via the Music Hubs of which NMPAT is the lead partner for Northamptonshire.
