Music 2021 - 2022

“Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart.” - Pablo Casalas


At Boundary Primary School, we recognise that music is a universal language that embodies the highest forms of creativity. Our music curriculum is designed to ignite a passion and love of music. All pupils will develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose within, and to listen with discrimination to, a wide range of musical genres.

We are incredibly proud to be a Music Mark School. This was awarded for our:

  • recognition of the value of music education as part of a broad and balanced curriculum
  • strategy for music which provides for all children
  • willingness to engage in development conversations related to improving music provision
