Gulworthy Primary School is committed to providing a broad and balanced music curriculum which is accessible and enjoyed by all. Our underlying intent is for children to grasp the knowledge of the interrelated dimensions of music. This is made up of: pulse, rhythm, pitch, dynamics, tempo, timbre, structure, texture and notation which provide the building blocks to music. Through the use of a well structured music programme, we are able to plan, apply, monitor and recap these fundamental areas and keep standards in music high across all year groups. Children are able to show their knowledge of musicality through a plethora of opportunities including: musical games and activities, composing and performing.

We use Charanga to teach music. Here is how knowledge and skills progress throughout the year groups:
