Exploration, creativity and emotional expression are at the core of our Music curriculum at The Bridge School. We encourage pupils to explore the sounds of the world around them, and how they can interact/manipulate with them to discover their unique musical voice.


We believe that music should be inclusive and is supportive for the holistic development of individuals. Our music curriculum facilitates our learners to experience a wide range of musical genres, cultures and history through an array of topics and themes outlined within the rolling programmes. Pupils have access to a wide range of motivating and engaging multi-sensory activities linked the music curriculum.


Within all music lessons, personal expression, demonstrating preferences and choice making are at the forefront of teaching and learning. These oppurtunities are scaffolded by practitioners who provide scope for pupils to extend their learning, promoting the development of musical techniques, e.g. tone, dynamics and tempo.


At The Bridge School, we use bespoke, sequenced, small-step descriptors that outline the key knowledge and skills within music. These descriptors provide an easy to use, aspirational framework that ensures all pupils make progress in what they know, what they can do and what they can remember.


Across all subjects and at all key stages, the overall intent is that the pupil engages, achieves, and makes the most personal progress they can over time to enable them to have the most fulfilling, enjoyable, and independent life possible.
