Subject Leader: Mr Faulks
Harlesden Primary School believes that Performing Arts Education is an essential part of a child's academic, social, emotional, spiritual, and physical development. Performance activity opportunities are provided during and after school, allowing children to be creative, musical and explore their emotions in a safe and challenging environment. It provides the foundation for a healthy lifestyle, and promotes character building, co-operation and self-esteem.
It is vital that children are given these opportunities to participate in a range of enjoyable creative and performance activities at an early age so that they are likely to continue being musical, confident, and creative throughout the rest of their lives, whilst promoting a love for the arts. Music is encouraged across our curriculum to ensure pupils are developing their speaking and listening skill.
Our aim is:
- To develop competence to excel in a broad range of performance and musical activities
- To ensure children are musically active for sustained periods of time
- To engage in performance and musical activities and opportunities
