Each class has music lessons within the school timetable. In Key Stage 1 the children follow the ‘Jolly Music’ scheme taught by the class teacher; tuned and unturned percussion instruments are used in these lessons. Year 6 play the  the glockenspiels and in Year 3 the children are taught the ukulele by a music specialist from the Lancashire Music Service. The children are able to take home their ukulele each week for practice and bring them back the following week for their lesson.

At Newton Bluecoat we pride ourselves on the singing which takes place. Singing is part of every music lesson. As a church school, we also see singing hymns as an important factor within our worship and a means of collectively praising the word of God.

We also invite musicians into school in order to allow all children to experience live music. Over the last few years we have had the ‘Lazy Mondays’  and a military brass band play for the children. Tyndale Thomas MBE has also visited school on several occasions and delivered gospel workshops for both key stages culminating in performances for parents.

Where possible we include music in cross curricular activities. Year 6 study Benjamin Britton in the Autumn Term. 


We aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.

Music Mark Award

We are pleased to announce that our commitment to music education has been recognised by Music Mark – the National Subject association for Music which is supported by ABRSM (the exam board for the Royal Schools of Music).
