Davyhulme Primary School, Davyhulme
Children's Mental Health Week 1st - 7th February 2021 | Partial Opening and Restricted Admissions - We continue to operate and apply a strict approach to all applications for school places . At present we have 131 pupils ( 25% ) in school with a further 48 families wanting 62 places. The new variants of the virus pose an increased level of threat according to the media of between 50% and 70% so our control measures across society should feel 50% - 70% stricter than the first wave back in March ...and it does not feel like that ' out and about '. Despite our best efforts we have had to Quarantine two ( empty classrooms ) for 72 hours as a precautionary step on advice from Trafford cleaning services.School will be able to provide more school places when staff have had  vaccines and feel safer. If a member of your household goes for a Covid test please do not send the children into school until you have the results of the test and they are negative.

Music

Music is taught across the school as a discrete subject, using Charanga. Every class experiences music through singing and instruments, and there is a focus on children being exposed to both modern and historical music. Children are encouraged to bring their own instruments in as part of class music lessons. Every child is given the opportunity to perform music or sing in a group as part of various shows throughout the year. Instrumental tuition is available to those children who wish to take advantage. Guitar lessons and Rocksteady sessions are available to both Key Stage 1 and 2. Violin and brass lessons are also available to Key Stage 2. These children are encouraged to perform in assemblies and concerts. Children in Key Stage 2 have the opportunity to join the choir, who perform as local nursing homes twice a year.

Overall, we aim for every child to have the opportunity each year to perform, compose and experience a wide range of music.
