Redbourn Primary School

This is the Schools Motto


Redbourn is a school which loves music and singing. 


Singing underpins learning in our Early Years Foundation Stage and is built upon in assemblies where we all sing as one and as the children move through the school. 


Regular class music lessons take place with the class teacher or in Key Stage 2, with our specialist music teacher Miss Toms, who delivers music, as well as French, each week.


All children in Year 3 learn to play the recorder in small groups of 8 throughout the entire year and perform to parents in a special annual recorder assembly. These lessons are funded by the school and are free of charge to parents. The lessons are delivered by Miss Larbey from Herts Music Service (HMS). Children in Year 4 can continue to play in a free of charge weekly recorder club.


We have peripatetic teachers from HMS offering woodwind and piano instrumental lessons. As well as a private guitar teacher, offering group and individual lessons. All three instrumental teachers showcase the children's progression in an annual assembly to parents.


We have a Key Stage 2 choir which rehearses all year round at lunch times, led by Miss Toms. The children enjoy singing in performances with schools from the local consortium as part of the Harpenden Schools Music Association. In addition, the choir has an annual schedule of community performances in Redbourn and St Albans, bringing music to the elderly, raising money for charity or participating in village life, such as Christmas markets and the Redbourn Festival.
