Hamp Nursery and Infants School

Where every child matters


At Hamp Nursery and Infant School, we have designed our Music Curriculum, with the intent that all our children experience music and progress in their understanding and skill as practitioners, becoming confident musical learners. Our Music Curriculum takes the children through a progressive cycle of skills-based learning, which will help them to develop listening, singing, composing and musicianship skills. It is our role to provide high quality listening, creative and performance experiences, to enable all children to encounter a broad and diverse range of musical styles and genres. Through these encounters, children will discover how and why music has changed through time and will make them more aware of cultural difference. Through skills building and experience widening, we aim to encourage all children, whatever their ability, to start an exciting, empowering and nourishing musical journey, discovering with musicians around the world, the power of music to change their lives and the communities around them.


At Hamp Nursery and Infants School we intend to ensure that all pupils:


  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods,
  • genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and
  • musicians
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and
  • with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology
  • appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical
  • excellence
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.


By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study.


Children receiving pupil premium funding are given additional opportunities to succeed in Music and to develop increased confidence and skills through the extra-curricular programme.


Children are given additional performance opportunities through Nativity and Year 2 productions as well as within the weekly singing assemblies or through concerts at parents’ evenings. Each year, a year group takes part in singing workshops provided by the Music Hub.
