Children at OSPA have the chance to experience first-hand musical excellence through music lessons, tuned and un-tuned percussion instruments and composition of their own music.  They have the opportunity to peer assess and evaluate their own work.

By the end of year 6 all children at OSPA will have had the opportunity to participate in violin lessons from an external specialist in class sessions.

Our Music Co-ordinator Mrs Bacon, leads singing assemblies every Thursday as well as offering an after-school singing club and arranging various musical events throughout the year.


Dance is taught through Physical Education lessons.  We encourage our pupils to explore a variety of movements and styles to create their own dance sequences.

Music and dance are very closely linked and allows pupils to express themselves through rhythm and movement.
