Loving for Today, Learning for Tomorrow, Forever in Faith


Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Ephesians 5:19-20

New International Version


At Northaw, making music is an expression of our faith. We have customised a scheme of work based on the Model Music Curriculum from Charanga. We sing together in collective worship each Monday, Wednesday and Friday; we also appreciate pieces of music taken from the Foundation Listening repertoire. Music is central to celebrations, including harvest, Christmas and Easter, and leavers’ performances. We host musical tuition. Embracing the power of music to change lives, we aim to play our part in a National Plan for Music Education, and have a Music Development Plan that captures the curricular and co-curricular offer and sets out how it will be staffed and funded. Ofsted’s research review series has informed our practice in this area.
