Music intent

Music is the sound track to our lives and transcends different cultures, economic status, academic ability and physical status. At The Albert Pye Primary School, we aim to instill a passion for music, develop well-rounded musicians, and provide a foundation for future musical exploration and learning.





Music implementation

Our school follows the Charanga Model Music Curriculum  which  sets out sequences of learning in the following key areas which, when taken together, all contribute towards the steadily increasing development of musicianship:

• Singing

• Listening

• Composing

• Performing/Instrumental Performance


By offering a rich and varied musical framework that nurtures fundamental musical techniques alongside building musical knowledge it is our ambition that every young person should be able to experience music and make progress across the Key Stages.

Wider Musical opportunities

We plan experiences using local musical events, making use of the local link to Aldeburgh and Snape music, including the 'Big Sing' in Year 4 and accessing support from a specialist music teacher in Nursery from the Red House. We provide opportunities for the children to perform to their peers, the school community , the wider community and  the public.  These include performing in class and assemblies, in Church at Harvest, Christmas and Easter and at local events such as the Christmas light s switch on. 


Private Music Tuition

We offer opportunities for children to learn to play the piano, clarinet and flute.

There is a weekly charge to parents for this, paid directly to the music teacher with no profit to the school.

The lessons are delivered by Mrs Kate Horsley

Please enquire at the school office if you would like your child to take part.

School Choir

We are very proud of our school choir which meets weekly and is led by Mrs Cameron and Mrs Kelly. The choir perrforms at school events and also at events in our local community. 

Music of the Week 


Our Music of the Week is promoted across the school as part of the assemblies and discussed further during music lessons. It provides opportunities for the children to learn more about the history of music and the impact that the artists have on the music world today.  The music includes classical and popular music and musical traditions with a spread of diversity, gender, world and UK musicians.
