Somerset Bridge Values
Aspire to be the best we can in our behaviour, our learning and our hopes and dreams.
Brave to challenge ourselves and take risks so that we achieve the best we can.
Care for our school environment, so that we maintain a safe, sustainable and healthy community and set an example for life choices both within and outside of school.
Collaborate with all members of the community – pupils, parents, staff, governors, neighbouring schools and organisations in the local area - ensuring that all contributions are encouraged and valued.


At Somerset Bridge Primary School, we believe that music helps children build essential skills and grow in confidence and self-esteem. We use Charanga to ensure that pupils gain a rich musical education, covering music from a vast array of genres and music from all around the world.


“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.”

~ Plato


“Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.”

~ Confucius


Children begin their musical journey in the EYFS through singing songs, and speaking chants and rhymes. They explore different sounds and play tuned and untuned instruments musically and begin to experiment with sounds to create their own compositions. As they progress through the Key Stages, children will also be taught to listen with concentration and developing understanding to a range of live and recorded music. Building on their previous knowledge and skills, they will explore both vocal and instrumental music in greater depth and breadth, to increase their confidence and competence. They will begin to develop an understanding of the history of music, and explore a wide range of high-quality live and recorded music from different places, traditions and periods.


We are also pleased to offer Samba percussion workshops for Year 3 children.
