We value music as a powerful art form which enables everyone to communicate about how they think, feel and act in life. Music empowers us to express ourselves, reflect on experiences we have had and develop our emotions. Music is a fundamental part of social culture, past and present, and our school culture, where it helps children understand themselves and communicate with others. We believe that experiencing and understanding music helps the mind and body work together. At St Osmund's, we believe every child should have the opportunity to explore and develop their musical potential as we encourage musical development across the school.
At St. Osmund’s, we encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences which build confidence and enjoyment in the subject. Singing is a big part of our school life, both in weekly lessons and as a celebration of our Catholic faith. Singing in schools histrionically improves self-esteem and helps children to be more calm and focused, and increases enjoyment and engagement in class.
