artsmark

We are delighted that we have been awarded the Silver Artsmark from the Arts Council. This is a prestigious award which reflects the work we have been doing in recent years.

We submitted a Statement of Commitment and a Case Study/Statement of Impact to the Arts Council which were assessed.

The following comments were made about our submissions:

You have made a good start to your Artsmark journey by upskilling staff and linking the Arts with other subjects such as Writing, History, Geography and PSHE. Your focus on artworks and religious beliefs is giving your pupils authentic opportunities to be exposed to a range of artworks. Art is noted a strength and is being taught by a specialist teacher who has introduced skills progression in art to monitor the progress being made. You have demonstrated that consistent arts and cultural experiences have been developed for your pupils such as the Lunch Time Club led by a local author, Ute Sproulle who runs a creative writing and reading club. You have ensured that all your pupils have opportunities to listen to live music. Congratulations on your Artsmark Silver Award!

Our next steps:

To make further progress in your Artsmark journey, you could develop pupil voice by involving them in planning and delivering authentic arts and cultural experiences. Building on your work of upskilling your staff, you might also want to explore opportunities to work in partnership with arts and cultural organisations and professionals to further develop your staff’s knowledge, skills and understanding of delivering high quality arts and cultural provision which could have positive impact on not only your staff but, also on outcome for your pupils.
