At Pleasant Street Primary school we strive to embed music as part as our school culture. Music has a unique way of communicating that can inspire and motivate children. It is a vehicle for personal expression and plays an important role in the personal development of children. We believe that music should be accessible for every pupil in our school. Making music provides opportunities for physical, intellectual, imaginative and spiritual development.

Successful participation in music develops pupils’ self-esteem, confidence, well-being and learning skills. It is an effective medium for self-expression and creativity.
In our school, music is taught in line with the National Curriculum for KS1 and 2 with composingperforming and appraising at the core of the subject. Singing is central to our music curriculum. Singing from an early age is critical for the development of key skills necessary for gaining strong musicianship. We believe everybody can sing and we want to make this fun and accessible for all, creating a strong culture of singing in our school life.


In 2021 we became a Music Mark school after being nominated by Resonate Liverpool.
