We are excited to develop our creative curriculum even further and have continued on our journey this year to achieve an ‘Artsmark Award.’(Artsmark is the creative quality standard for schools, accredited by Arts Council England).

What do Artsmark provide?

Artsmark provides a clear framework for teachers to plan, develop and evaluate arts, culture and creativity across the curriculum.

Schools are supported throughout their journey by their regional network of bridge organisations, providing training, advice, practical teaching resources and introductions to leading cultural organisations within the area.

Congratulations to the children in Year 6 who achieved their Arts Award Discover certificate from Trinity College, London in December 2021. Arts Award is a qualification that supports children to enjoy the arts and develop creativity. The children took part in a range of arts activities including dance workshops, learning about a rap artist, developing their skills in graffiti art and a dance performance. We are incredibly proud that they have achieved these awards and hope that they go on to further develop them at Secondary School.

Year 3 and 4T performed their ‘Same but Different’ dance on Thursday 9th December 2021. They worked relentlessly and rehearsed to perfection and put on a fantastic performance. They captured the theme of everyone being the same but also celebrated their differences through three different styles of dance. This was attended by Jodie Stus, a representative from the Black Country Dance Hub.
