Moston Lane

Community Primary School

‘Be The Best You Can Be’


At Moston Lane, we intend to engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians.  Through this highly creative subject we wish to increase their self -confidence, creativity and a sense of achievement. Pupils will develop listening, performing and evaluation skills alongside a range of composition skills. This is done through a wide range of music across historical periods, genres, styles and traditions enriching the pupils’ cultural capital.

At Moston Lane we follow the Charanga online scheme of work. By using this resource, the children are given the opportunity to develop their listening, appraising, playing and performing skills in every lesson. Charanga is an integrated, practical, exploratory and child-led approach to musical learning. Children have the opportunity to develop their singing skills and to experience playing a variety of untuned and tuned percussion instruments. We also use the BBC Ten Pieces scheme in Key Stage 2 to help the children gain a deeper understanding of different composers and genres of music. We also use the Twinkl Recorder scheme in Year 3,4 and 5 to help all children get some first hand experience of learning an instrument.

Moston Lane Primary is a partner of MyHub - the music education hub for the City of Manchester. Our school offers violin/viola and steel drum first access opportunities to pupils in Years 4-6. We engage with MyHub through network meetings,  musical events and working with partner Arts organisations.


The children at Moston Lane really enjoy music and we are very proud of their achievements both in and out of the classroom.
