Welcome to Music at Gorsemoor
It is our belief, that the purpose of education is to provide young people with the knowledge and skills to prepare children for their diverse working lives, build character, teach knowledge for its own intrinsic value and ignite a love of learning. At Gorsemoor we believe that music opens the door to creativity. Music captures the heart and mind of an individual while embracing the creative spark of all children.
Our curriculum aims to engage and inspire pupils by instilling a love of music and a passion for performance. By developing key skills such as composition, performance and critical listening, the curriculum has been designed to develop pupils’ talents throughout their Gorsemoor journey and beyond. Children are able to demonstrate personal or collaborative learning by expressing themselves through the universal language and art of music from a range of cultures. Self-confidence is established and nurtured through individual and group achievements to encompass a diverse, practical and dynamic curriculum. Only by instilling our pupils with a far reaching and varied education can we truly unlock the true potential of the individual.
At Gorsemoor we continue to provide all children with a broad and balanced curriculum despite COVID 19 restrictions and in line with risk assessments. In Music lessons, children are taught using an adapted Charanga scheme to support teaching music safely and if instruments are used within lessons they are fully sanitised between uses. Specialist instrumental lessons continue to be delivered to a range of children from different cohorts by Entrust Music teachers with provisions made to facilitate safe practice.
