At Newton Village Academy, our aim is to help children feel that they are musical and to develop a life-long love of music.


Through our music curriculum, children gain a firm understanding of what music is by listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres from all around the world

We use ‘Kapow’ as our main resource for planning and implementing our scheme of work, which takes a holistic approach to Music, in which the individual strands are woven together to create engaging and enriching learning experiences:


  • Performing
  • Listening
  • Composing
  • The history of music
  • The inter-related dimensions of music

We work within the Furness Education Trust to expand the musical possibilities for our children.  They are given the opportunity to learn and perform with the other schools across the Trust as well as within our own school.

Each class is given the opportunity to perform to an audience each term.
