Artsmark has been designed by schools, for schools, to align with School Improvement Plans to give the curriculum breadth and balance. As well as recognising schools that are making the arts come alive, the Artsmark award is a practical and valuable tool for enriching a school’s arts provision whatever the starting point. It provides schools with access to enviable networks of leading cultural organisations that will enable them to use the arts to engage and develop happy, self-expressed and confident young people and inspire teachers.
At Barrow we are working towards achieving GOLD Artsmark, which means we not only provide high quality arts provision to the children in the school, but lead a wider group of settings in raising their standards.
To do this we are developing creative skills across all subjects in our curriculum, planning in a wide range of trips, visits and visitors and planning large scale whole school events.
