Welcome toSt Oswald'sC of E AcademyChurch, School, Community


To promote a love of music where children have opportunities to:

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.


Our music curriculum is rich and varied. All children in our school are provided with regular music lessons using Charanga as a basic resource. This ensures that skills are built upon year after year through exciting and age appropriate stimuli.
We are well resourced in a range of tuned and non-tuned percussion. KS2 children have the Wider Opportunities whole class percussion lessons for at least half an academic year. 
The school involves itself in local events such as Christmas Concerts at St Oswald's Church and generally around the community by visiting places to perform to a local audience e.g. Follow the Star, Carols around the Tree. The school choir has performed at the Young Voices concerts and we also produce a Year 6 musical each summer term where singing is at its core. KS2 Children have the opportunity to learn guitar, violin and brass instruments taught by musical specialists from Doncaster Music Service. 
The children will have the experience of learning an instrument, singing, performing and composing. Children will continue learning these into secondary school and beyond. They will have developed a life- long love of music.
