Curwen receives the Artsmark GOLD Award
Arts Council England celebrates Curwen Primary School’s ongoing commitment to arts and cultural education and the opportunities established across the school. Children are offered equal opportunity to plan, experience, participate in, and evaluate a broad range of high-quality arts and cultural activities, both in school and with a range of arts and cultural organisations.
They also recognised how Curwen is successfully working to share the good practice that has been established in the school. The panel further commended Curwen’s commitment to providing a wide range of artistic and cultural opportunities for pupils. They specifically commented on the positive culture at the school, where the benefits of the arts are seen by teachers, pupils and parents and evidenced through the positive feedback and collaboration with a range of partners. The panel was impressed by the development of youth voice and leadership of pupils through the Arts Ambassador scheme.
