Designed by schools for schools, the refreshed Artsmark will help you to embed arts and culture in your whole school improvement plan.
Awarded by Arts Council England, Artsmark helps schools to deliver a high-quality arts and cultural education and provides an excellent way to demonstrate this, no matter what your starting point.
We believe that every child should have an opportunity to create, experience and participate in extraordinary work. At the heart of Artsmark, seven quality principles give structure and substance to a curriculum which can unlock the potential of children and young people and help them to develop their skills and talents.
The process will enrich, develop and strengthen your school’s arts and culture provision. Artsmark also celebrates your school’s strengths and helps you to share them with the wider world.
Artsmark schools gain access to exceptional resources, expertise, offers and networks of cultural organisations.
IVE offers a range of free support for schools on their Artsmark journey, from face to face workshops to phone support and resources. Contact us for more information or visit our events page.
Every Artsmark school in Yorkshire and Humber has access to FREE places on our professional development twilights. There are eight different sessions that look at how different arts and cultural activities can support the curriculum. Click here to download details.
In December 2017, we launched the Artsmark Partnership Programme. It’s an Arts Council England endorsed network of arts and cultural organisations that can support you on your Artsmark journey. Click here for more info. Later this year we’ll be launching a searchable database of Artsmark partners. In the meantime, we can email you with a list of our current Artsmark partners.
For all enquiries, requests and support please email email@example.com
Registering for Artsmark has a common sense application process that is light on paperwork and flexible to how each school is run.
To begin, please visit Artsmark.org.uk/registration and complete a registration form.
Once registered, the next step is to attend an Artsmark Development Day where IVE will explain in greater detail the process, answer any questions you may have and support you in establishing the goals and methods of your Artsmark journey.
Development Days are organised regularly across all regions. You can find the next upcoming dates on our events page.
To find out more and register your school please visit www.artsmark.org.uk
