Pupils and staff at St George's are celebrating after receiving a prestigious Silver Artsmark Award. Artsmark is Arts Council England's award for schools and education settings that embrace the arts across the curriculum, bringing them to life for children and young people.
In order to achieve the Artsmark Award we had to develop our arts and culture provision to embed a broad and balanced curriculum. This was achieved by creating an overall plan that was committed to and delivered across the whole school.
On receiving the award, Mrs Grindrod said: "We're extremely proud of achieving our Artsmark Silver Award. We are committed to delivering a high quality arts and cultural education and we look forward to continuing to grow with Artsmark."
Darren Henley, Chief Executive of Arts Council England, said: "I would like to congratulate St George's Church of England Primary School on their Artsmark Award. As an Artsmark school, St George's exemplifies how the Award can help schools to achieve a broad and balanced curriculum, ensuring that each of its pupils is given the opportunity to explore and build a love of the arts that will remain with them as they go through adult life."
