You've achieved an Artsmark Silver Award!

We are delighted to inform you that your setting has been awarded an Artsmark Silver Award. Congratulations!

Your Statement of Commitment and Statement of Impact have been assessed and we’re pleased to share this feedback from our assessors with you: 

'You have laid down really solid foundations for your creative, arts-rich philosophy for learning during this cycle of Artsmark activity. The hallmark of your work has been an increase in exposure to and engagement with arts activities for young people, and a challenging of preconceptions/building of confidence among staff. Both help to reset expectations and ambitions, setting a clear path for your onward journey. Highlights have included more work with artists thanks to additional funding ring-fenced from the school budget, improved teacher confidence along with the adoption of a 'growth mindset' and can-do attitude toward the arts. You have also used the arts as a means of providing 'soft landings' for transient learners who pass through your school and move onto other settings. As you continue with your journey it would be advantageous to reflect on the characteristics of good teaching and learning when the arts are a more developed part of your offer. This helps when commissioning projects, working with partners and sharing learning with other settings because you can be more precise about what you have done pedagogically and therefore know what else you would like to develop.'

Congratulations on your Artsmark Silver Award!


With warm wishes,
