Love for God - Love for each other - Love for learning
At St. Osmund's the intention is that children gain a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres.
Our objective is to develop a curiosity for the subject, as well as an understanding and acceptance of the validity and importance of all types of music, and an unbiased respect for the role that music may wish to be expressed in any person’s life.
We are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community, and are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves in music, in a variety of different contexts.
The whole school joins together each week to sing led by Caroline Williams, our Parish Outreach Worker, supported by a local parishioner playing the piano.
Our newly formed KS2 school choir, 'St. Osmund's Young Voices', meet twice a week to sing together. They have performed at St. Thomas' Church as part of the Christmas Tree Festival, and are preparing for another church concert in the Summer where they will sing as part of a larger local school choir.
