Music plays an important part of our curriculum here at Clapgate. Using a scheme called Charanga, our music curriculum aims to develop your child's aesthetic judgement of different types of music through singing a range of songs.


We are also delighted to announce that we have partnered with ArtForms, the leading music education specialists in Leeds, for this year. Their qualified music teachers will be working alongside us to deliver outstanding singing lessons and instrumental teaching through the entire school, including guitars, keyboards, steel pans, ukuleles, recorders and delivering a new and enriching music programme in our foundation stage.


Music helps children learn across subjects and can help to build social and cultural values. It is also well recognised that music can aid memory and help to develop the skills, attitudes and attributes that can support learning in other national curriculum subjects so don't be surprised if you hear music being played both inside and outside the school building to aid concentration, inspire learning or promote productivity.

The webpages below have links to some excellent websites where children can have fun, create their own music, listen to a range of genres, learn about musicians of the past and research different instruments in an orchestra.
