St Mary’s school is celebrating after gaining a silver Sing Up award.
The Sing Up award scheme recognises when schools have used singing in all areas of the curriculum and with all age groups.
The national award, which is open to all primary schools, has three levels, silver, gold and platinum.
Pupils from the school learnt songs including the national anthem while also writing some of their own compositions about Beverley. The school pupils sang collectively and also as individual classes.
Bridget Whyte from Sing Up, said: “I am delighted to endorse the Sing Up silver award. The evidence clearly shows that the school is developing ways in which to put singing at the heart of the school life.”
The school has spent two terms working towards the award, which has involved the whole community, pupils, staff, parents and govenors.
Lucy Jordan, head teacher, said: “The children have really enjoyed finding new ways to explore their learning through song, and our aim is to continue to embrace singing at St Mary’s.
“We will enjoy celebrating the achievement of our silver award and intend to begin on our journey towards our gold award in the new academic year.”
Sing Up is a national organisation which was set up in 2007 in response to the recommendations of the music manifesto.
