Music is led by Mrs Brown. As a school, we follow a music scheme called Charanga.

At Bovingdon Primary Academy, we aim to ensure that every child develops a love of music. As a school, we follow the Charanga music scheme where children are taught to perform, listen to and evaluate music from a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions.  The children are encouraged to use their originality and initiative to create, compose and perform their own music. 

As a school, we have recently introduced music assemblies whereby each term, several children who are learning an instrument, are invited to play their instrument in assembly. This has been a great success and is a great way to celebrate the children’s talents and inspire other children to learn to play an instrument.
