At Steyning C of E Primary School, it is our intent to develop a life-long passion and appreciation of all styles of music. We strongly believe that music is fundamental to our children’s education and can increase confidence, social skills and creative abilities. Our aim is to enable children, regardless of background, ability, and additional needs to be motivated, effective and independent life-long learners and to take part in a full and varied music curriculum.
