St Thomas' Catholic Primary School

Truth and Courage

“Pupils at St Thomas’ Primary make rapid progress as they move through the school and achieve highly in all the subjects taught. They are exceptionally well prepared by the time they leave the school to start the next stage of their learning.”


Music plays a major part in the life of the school and children participate in a variety of musical activities as part of the curriculum, including singing, percussion bands and recorder playing. The music curriculum gives children opportunities to perform (controlling sounds through singing and playing); compose (Creating and developing ideas); appraise (responding and reviewing); and listen to music (applying knowledge and understanding). Music is taught by a specialist teacher. All children are given the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument – this is currently the violin in Year 3. Through their participation in assemblies, masses, concerts etc. children are able to demonstrate their skills to live audiences with growing confidence.
