WELCOME to Welford Primary School

Music

At Welford we value the role of music in our curriculum and so have expanded our provision in recent years. Our children in Year 3, 4 and 5 all take part in a weekly programme of intensive music tuition provided by specialist music teachers to help them learn the guitar in year 3, brass instruments or keyboard in year 4 and keyboards in year 5.  Children who show a particular aptitude in music are able to carry on this specialist teaching in a small group in Years 5 and 6. The school also offers violin lessons for our children with a visiting specialist.

Meanwhile, children in Reception are working with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) and the Birmingham Conservatoire on a musical project and Nursery plus years 1, 2 and 6 receive units of musical composition with a specialist music teacher spread across the year.

Finally, all children participate in weekly singing assemblies and we are proud to have both a children’s and staff choir.
