Mrs Lynne Dearlove - Music Teacher
At St. Anthony’s School, we are very proud of our musical achievements, in which students of all abilities are challenged and engaged through a rich and varied curriculum. Our schemes of work aim to achieve a balance between traditional and modern, western and non-western music.
Promoting Fundamental British Values
In Music mutual respect and tolerance are fundamental parts of our ethos regarding audience etiquette. The music curriculum also promotes tolerance and understanding of other cultures by incorporating songs and music from different parts of the world. Pupils are given opportunities to work in pairs or in groups, sharing ideas and resources. We also encourage pupils to support each other e.g. through peer assessment pupils give each other positive feedback and make suggestions as to how work can be improved. Through musical activities pupils develop a sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about the world around them. A tolerance of different cultural traditions is promoted by enabling pupils to acquire an appreciation of and respect for different cultures and styles within Music.
