At Dixons Music Primary, learning is at the heart of everything we do. Our vision is for all pupils to leave us as competent readers, writers and mathematicians after receiving a broad and balanced education with us. We expect all of our pupils to make substantial and sustained progress throughout the Key Stages, leaving us 'secondary ready' in Year 6. Pupils will be empowered to flourish at secondary school from their firm foundations at Music Primary.
Our staff are highly skilled and understand that in order for children to make good progress, learning has to be purposeful and enjoyable. Through music and the wider curriculum, children will grow into independent, hard-working children who enjoy their learning. Our curriculum has been designed starting with topics that interest the children. Our music curriculum is broad and engaging; children receive specialist music tuition throughout the week learning a variety of instruments, singing skills and musicianship. We believe that by studying music from an early age, pupils literacy and numeracy skills will develop at a faster pace.
Pupils at Music Primary enjoy their learning very much and talk about their work with enthusiasm and pride. We are pleased to offer an extended academy day, beginning with an optional breakfast club and providing a wide range of performing arts, sports and curriculum clubs after school.
Pupils are encouraged to be independent throughout the day and learn to take responsibility for their actions. These learning behaviours are rewarded through celebratory assemblies and notes home to parents.
We strive to be truly outstanding in all that we do. Adults act as positive role models to pupils and model the Academy values of hard work, independence and enjoyment throughout the day. At the start of every day, the children join in the Academy mantra which sets the tone for the learning that follows in the day ahead. It is always upbeat and enthusiastic, setting the scene at the start of the learning day.
