This week is National Celebrate Artsmark Week. We’re showcasing the fantastic work that all Artsmark schools are doing to protect and embed the arts in their curriculum.
Artsmark is a creative quality standard that serves as a practical and valuable tool for enriching a school’s arts provision. It has been designed by schools, for schools, to align with School Improvement Plans and give the curriculum breadth and balance.
Artsmark schools make a commitment to providing high-quality arts and cultural opportunities for all pupils. They use the arts to inspire learning and develop happy, successful and confident children and young people.
In Yorkshire and the Humber, they are supported in this objective with guidance and advice from us as their regional bridge organisation and other Artsmark schools through regular networking events. They also receive resources, FREE CPD sessions and access to special offers and discounts from arts organisations.
This week, we’re talking about 4 Artsmark schools in Yorkshire, why they started their Artsmark journey, what happened to them on the way, what they learned and what the benefits have been.
