At West Ashtead Primary, we believe that music making is a powerful and personal experience that can aid pupils’ development in so many ways; academically, physically, socially and emotionally. Our aim is to provide every pupil with a high quality music education which engages, inspires and nurtures a love of music and so in turn, increases self confidence, creativity and achievement.

We are committed to providing the pupils with a wide variety of learning activities that include performing, composing, listening and appraising a wide variety of music from different genres, eras and cultures. Our pupils have the  opportunity to play at least one instrument whilst they are at West Ashtead Primary and will be able to develop an understanding  and use different forms of music notation. We offer extensive range of enrichment activities which includes trips, visitors, choir, rock band, performing in high quality musical events and productions and playing in our orchestra. 

We deliver our Music Curriculum through the 'Sing Up' scheme of work and in collaboration with Sutton Music Service.
