Research proves the positive connection between singing and well-being, and confirms that regular singing contributes to good mental and physical health. Singing has been shown to aid social development amongst children, and regular high-quality singing in school has a profoundly positive impact on learning outcomes across the curriculum.
Singing can make transformative change in the lives of young people.
What our Year 6 children had to say is a powerful reminder of why we do what we do:
Aisha, Year 6 Falcons: “Singing makes us feel we’re all one family.”
Ariana, Year 6 Eagles: “Singing makes our school fun and interesting.”
Kaila, Year 6 Eagles: “Singing is a great way to express yourself and it helps build confidence and happiness.”
Sophie, Year 6 Eagles: “Singing helps children express their feelings and develops learning.”
Zoe, Year 6 Falcons: “It fills people with happiness while learning and having fun.”
