Music is a hugely important part of school life at Spilsby Primary. We offer a large range of opportunities to our children, including:
Whole school singing every day in assembly (including a special singing assembly led by Mrs Jeffery every Tuesday).
Weekly class music lessons taught by specialist music teacher, Mrs Jeffery
Choir - every Tuesday after school, which is open to all pupils in Years 3-6, meets to sing a range of songs. We perform at a range of events throughout the year, including carol concerts in Spilsby and beyond, the Spilsby Schools Music Festival and Young Voices.
Instrumental Tuition - We are extremely lucky at Spilsby Primary to offer lessons in Guitar, Drums, Brass and Keyboard. We have visiting teachers who come into school. Let Mrs Jeffery know if you are interested in taking up a musical instrument. We are currently recruiting new Guitar pupils for Mr Newby so do get in touch if you are interested in starting guitar lessons.
Spilsby Primary is proud to be recognised for our commitment to high-quality music education!
