“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” - Plato


"True professionals throughout the day on and off stage. Your performance was beautiful!" - Learning & Inclusion Team

"You were an absolute pleasure! We were blown away by the standard of your performance and the children are a real credit to the school. Well done! We have just been singing your praises in the office this morning!" - Karen, Aldeburgh Music


At Hadleigh Community Primary School we make music an enjoyable learning experience. The children participate in a variety of musical activities, through which they build up confidence and progress to the best of their abilities. Singing lies at the heart of our school and by singing songs, children learn about the structure and organisation of music. After a great deal of hard work and enjoyment, we were pleased to gain a ‘Silver’ singing award endorsed by ‘Sing Up’.

All children from Reception to Year 6 have a weekly class music lesson. Every child learns at least one instrument including the ukulele throughout Key Stage 2. Children have the opportunity to learn recorder starting with a club after school for Year 3 children and the possibility to join an intermediate or advanced group during years 4 to 6. Year 4 children have ‘taster’ violin sessions with our visiting string specialist and may continue with group lessons if desired. A small number of pupils participate in flute and clarinet tuition.

We have a very large and popular choir with children from years 4 to 6. During the year the choir takes part in several performances including Christmas presentations and the summer concert.

Children are encouraged to join in musical activities out of school with a celebration of their achievements in assemblies and class lessons. Two singers of the week are chosen, one from each of the two key stages with a presentation of certificates during ‘Weekly Wonders’ assembly . All children have opportunities for performance of musical talent in lessons, year group sessions, talent shows, plays and concerts.
