We love music at Cumnor School. We want our pupils to be creative and inspired to strive for mastery of an instrument. We want to educate them in the rich and diverse language of music to enable them to have a lifelong unique way of expressing themselves and communicating with others.
Our curriculum is rich and broad, taking into account the exposure to music our pupils receive and enhancing it wherever possible. It develops competency in listening, performing and evaluating a range of genres and periods of music.ICT and instruments are competently used to deepen understanding of musical dimensions. Aside from our comprehensive curriculum, we also have a wide variety of activities for the children to take part in. One year group benefits from the VIP musical programme to learn guitar. One year group learns recorder. In addition, a wide variety of instruments are taught by visiting peripatetic teachers. KS2 pupils perform at the Christmas Big Sing in the Oxford Town Hall and we regularly participate in the Festival of Voices at Dorchester Abbey and numerous local singing concerts and community events.
