Music

Vision

At Bader, we recognise, acknowledge and celebrate the importance of Music in education. We are very passionate and convinced that Music can be the soul of a Good school. Music is a discipline that develops listening skills and team work. These are life skills that we want to develop within the context of the school. We want to give every child at Bader the opportunity to explore music, discover their talents and be given experiences they wouldn’t get outside of school. We want to inspire our children in order to have dreams for their future and build their confidence to take on the challenges they face.

Our aim is to ensure that every child in Bader school has access to a musical education appropriate to their age and ability. We want all children to have the opportunity to partake in performing experiences and to gain confidence and self-esteem. We have carefully selected a curriculum that meets the aims for children  by ensuring there is a progression and a consistent development throughout all key stages. We also ensure musical provision is in place for every child.

We are proud to be a Music Mark School Member
