Music at Chesterton Primary


National Curriculum Statement

At Chesterton Primary we are guided by the National Curriculum for Music (2014).

The National Curriculum for music aims 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 notation

We also use Charanga Music to support the teaching of music at Chesterton.


There are weekly singing assemblies.
