Our vision

Harlesden Primary School believes that Performing Arts Education is an essential part of a child's academic, social, emotional, spiritual, and physical development. Performance activity opportunities are provided during and after school, allowing children to be creative, musical and explore their emotions in a safe and challenging environment. It provides the foundation for a healthy lifestyle, and promotes character building, co-operation and self-esteem.

It is vital that children are given these opportunities to participate in a range of enjoyable creative and performance activities at an early age so that they are likely to continue being musical, confident, and creative throughout the rest of their lives, whilst promoting a love for the arts. Music is encouraged across our curriculum to ensure pupils are developing their speaking and listening skill.

Our aim is:

  • To develop competence to excel in a broad range of performance and musical activities
  • To ensure children are musically active for sustained periods of time
  • To engage in performance and musical activities and opportunities


Harlesden’s Music Curriculum is designed to promote a love and enthusiasm for music while covering all areas of the National Curriculum. The goal of the curriculum is to develop and enhance every pupil’s general musicianship skills through participation in a variety of activities. Singing, performance, instrument playing and reading of music lie at the heart of the programme. 
At Harlesden we offer several lunchtime and after-school clubs including African drumming, choir, violin and recorder club. COVID precautions have kept these activities limited to one year group bubble per term, but we hope in the future to expand and offer these activities once again to the whole school.
