Music is a universal language which is naturally inspiring. At Farncombe we want all pupils to feel uplifted and motivated by music, to be inspired to hear more and participate in making music.

We teach music in weekly lessons using the Charanga scheme. This enables all pupils to progress rapidly, to know more about music and to build their skills using percussion instruments, their bodies and voices.

In addition to these lessons, children listen to classical music each week, as part of our cultural capital provision.

Children regularly perform songs at St John’s Church and in the school hall, providing the important formative experiences of standing in front of an audience.
