- Provide learning opportunities that enable all pupils to make good progress
- Aim to extend children’s experiences through workshop initiatives with external Professional Musicians. This has included the talents of spoon percussionist Jo May and the professional choir, the Armonico Consort.
- Strive to meet the needs of those pupils with special educational needs, those with disabilities, Gifted and Talented pupils, and those learning English as an additional language.
As a community school, we strongly believe music enriches the lives of people, and it is our aim to involve as many children as possible in musical activities both within the school day and as extra-curricular activities such as Steel Pan Ensemble, and Musical Theatre Group. Singing is featured in all whole school assemblies and there are choirs who put on performances. Our staff choir helps to support our school growth mindset policy and provides inspiration for pupils to develop a ‘have a go’ attitude.
At Franche, music lessons and extra-curricular activities are planned and taught by a dedicated Specialist Teacher: Mrs Brockman. Mrs Gudger also works alongside her providing opportunities for children within our Lower School.
