At Langdale Primary School we wholeheartedly recognise the benefits of music within the school curriculum.
We are delighted to be a Music Mark School member in recognition of our commitment to quality music education.
We have an excellent relationship with the Cumbria Music Hub whom provide us with a highly skilled specialist teacher 'Debbie Howrie' each Thursday afternoon. Debbie inspires the children to develop a love of music through her carefully planned EYFS, key stage 1 and key stage 2 subject content.
As a staff team we recognise the cognitive benefits that music gives to children. Staff believe that when the alchemy of music is allowed to permeate throughout the school curriculum it has a positive impact on all aspects of the school's learning.
Research carried out by the University of London clearly demonstrates the benefits of music to children:
- Music Improves Learning Skills
- Music Fosters Team working
- Music Boosts Attainment Levels
- Music Underpins Better Behaviour
- Music Enhances Social Skills
