Music

At Bridgewater Park we have recently invested in the Charanga Musical School Scheme. This scheme provides teachers with week-by-week lessons for each year group in the school from ages 5-11. It is ideal for specialist and non-specialist teachers and provides lesson plans, assessment, clear progression, and engaging and exciting whiteboard resources for every lesson. The Scheme supports all the requirements of the national curriculum and is absolutely in line with published Ofsted guidance.

We have used the scheme and adapted it to fit in line with our two-year rolling programme amd the needs of our pupils, enabling our mixed cohorts to be delivered a music curriculum which will engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music, and increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.
