Oak Tree Primary School



Music teaching at Oak Tree delivers the requirements of the National Curriculum through use of the Kapow Primary music scheme. Consistent high quality lessons are delivered by a music specialist in KS2 and EYFS and experienced class teachers in KS1.


Within the EYFS setting, music is an integral part of children’s learning journey. Children learn a wide range of songs and rhymes and develop skills for performing together. Singing and music making opportunities are used frequently to embed learning, develop musical awareness and to demonstrate how music can be used to express feelings.


Children in Year 4 benefit from whole class specialist teaching, delivered by a member of Stockport Music Service. These lessons allow children the opportunity to learn to play an instrument as part of an ensemble and to engender a love of music learning. 


Performance is at the heart of musical teaching and learning at Oak Tree and pupils participate in a range of performances during their school ‘career’. These include nativities, Easter performances, Leavers performance (Year 6). Pupils also take part in Harvest assemblies and performances to other classes to showcase their learning from the term. Pupils who are confident are encouraged to perform in solo performances. Parents are invited and welcomed to watch all these performances whether at school or outside of school.


Alongside our curriculum provision for music, pupils also have the opportunity to participate in additional 1:1 music teaching by being offered the opportunity to learn a musical instrument with peripatetic teachers. Our peripatetic music teaching is organised by the Stockport Music Service. In addition to this, many pupils continue their enthusiasm for music by joining the RockSteady programme, which is an outside provider where children can learn an instrument while being part of a band, preparing for regular performances.


Oak Tree also has a school, band, choir and recorder club where attendance is optional and children love to perform and showcase their talents.
