Music at Applecroft:

Welcome to the Music page of the Applecroft website. Music is a key feature of our school and we aim to provide many opportunities for our children to thrive in this area.


Music Curriculum Aims:

  • To instil a love of music in every child and to develop their confidence in music-making and performing.
  • To equip children with the knowledge, skills and experiences necessary to appreciate a range of music styles, enabling them to articulate their musical preferences.
  • To provide musical opportunities for pupils to make good progress, whatever their level of competence.
