We are delighted to announce that the school has just been awarded the prestigious Artsmark Gold from The Arts Council.
Our ‘Gold’ level of award represents the highest level of achievement. This is the fourth time the school has been awarded this distinction and consequently The Arts Council will announce this success at a national level on the 23rd May 2012.
We will also receive a special plaque early June.
The application was led superbly by Mr Rojas, Art Co-ordinator, who ensured that all the incredible art activities which go on in school were seen by the assessors as well as organising their visit earlier in the term.
To say the assessing team were impressed would be an understatement. They thoroughly enjoyed their day here and were hugely impressed by the standard of art provision and the quality of work the children in school create.
In their report they said “Your application demonstrated an excellent commitment to providing high quality arts provision that is embedded across your curriculum”.
Well done to the children and staff! Now we have await for our specially commissioned ‘celebration toolkit’!
