Garlinge Primary School and Nursery, Westfield Road, Margate, Kent, CT9 5PA


At Garlinge Primary School and Nursery we understand that music is a highly creative universal language. We believe that music education should engage and inspire children to develop a love for music, developing their talents, creativity and sense of achievement through a curriculum which is:

  • Topic-based, linking to school topics or science units where possible
  • Cross-curricular
  • Musically diverse
  • Fully resourced
  • Accessible to non-music readers

The main aims for musical education at Garlinge are:

  • To perform, listen to, review and evaluate music from range of different genres, styles, cultures, traditions and historical periods.
  • To listen to the works of great composers and musicians.
  • To learn to sing, and to develop and use their voices to create and compose music on their own and with others.
  • To use body percussion and whole-body actions to create and compose music on their own and with others.
  • To have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument.
  • To understand how music is created, produced and communicated through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, tempo, timbre, duration, dynamics, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.

In addition, children are offered the opportunity to participate in extra-curricular musical opportunities, including several after school music clubs, as well as working with highly experienced music teachers from the local area.
