Oakfield Academy is very proud of its strong musical tradition. The music curriculum aims to provide all of our pupils with a rich experience of music in all of its forms as well as enable our pupils to develop an enduring love of music.
Our Specialist Music Teacher: Ms Claire Parsons (Head of Performing Arts.)
KS2 Music Teachers: Kate Bryan & Liam Oates,
There are many opportunities for pupils to experience the thrill of performing in a variety of different contexts as well as learn how to work in the technical side of a performance. We understand that all our pupils are different and therefore it’s important that they are given every chance to find their ‘thing’ be it performing in front of an audience, learning how to operate sound equipment, singing in a choir, leading a music club, song writing or playing as part of a band.
ANNUAL EVENTS/PERFORMING OPPORTUNITIES INCLUDE:-
OAKFIELD’S GOT TALENT
JACKDAWS MUSIC PROJECTS
JACKDAWS SUMMER PICNICS
There are also many other opportunities provided throughout the year where are pupils can work with professional musicians (SONS OF PITCHES & BRAZILIAN SAMBA), take part in collaborative projects (THE BIG SING) or enjoy professional performances (LONDIN THEATRE TRIPS).
PERIPATETIC MUSIC LESSONS:-
Pupils also have the opportunity earn a wide variety of musical instruments and take part in numerous live performances, both in and out of school. These sessions are run by individual teachers not connected to the Academy.
Details of the timetable for these for 2021/2022 are currently being processed.
Thank you to those parents who have completed consent forms and paid for Peripatetic Music lessons for this term. Unfortunately, due to several reasons beyond our control, we have not been able to get this up and running as we would normally at the start of a new academic year.
Please could we ask you to bear with us and we will be in touch shortly.
Thank you for your patience and apologies for this delay.
