Policies and Procedures
Thomlinson Junior School has excellent music facilities. We have a specialist music teacher working in our school on a weekly basis, providing lessons to every year class once a fortnight, and supporting the school with special choirs formed for important events such as Christmas. We also have a number of peripatetic music teachers who provide musical instruction in a variety of instruments, such as violin or viola, guitar, brass instruments and piano, for those children who wish to participate.
Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.
