Glebe Primary School

Music

At Glebe Primary School we provide opportunities for all pupils to create, play, perform and enjoy music. We want every pupil to experience a wide variety of musical forms and appreciate the importance of making music together.

Instrumental Tuition

Across the school around 170 pupils are currently learning a musical instrument. Pupils are able to choose from keyboard, violin, guitar, flute, clarinet, recorder, tabla, harmonium, sitar and steel pans.

Bb Project

For the last 10 years, pupils in Year 5 have had the opportunity to learn the clarinet or trumpet via the Harrow Music Service Bb Project. We also run a follow up class for 30 pupils in Year 6 to continue to learn, and these pupils participate in the HMS Band Festival in November.

Music Clubs

We run a School Band for selected pupils to improve their instrumental skills. These pupils perform at the end of the term and in the Spring Concert.

Sing Up

We hold the Sing Up Platinum Award.  Singing is a significant part of school life. Teachers are encouraged to sing with their classes during the week. Teachers use Sing Up to enhance their teaching activities and incorporate it into their planning. As part of the Sing Up initiative we have run a successful music project with Woodlands School.

Concerts, Festivals and Productions

The special festivals of Diwali and Christmas are celebrated with productions by the Infants and Juniors. Every Spring term we have a Spring Concert which celebrates the musical skills and achievements of our pupils. Pupils learning instruments participate in Music Festivals throughout the year run by Harrow Music Service. In Year 6 pupils put on a production at the end of the Year to celebrate their time at Glebe.
