We encourage our pupils to participate in Arts Award which is accredited by Trinity College London. We have two members of staff who are trained to lead and manage the Award. We are currently working with over 250 pupils in gaining their ‘Discover’ Award as part of the Tour De France/Yorkshire Festival Celebrations and then we are following on with the ‘Explore’ Award. This award provides motivation and inspiration as pupils develop their art form knowledge, creativity and experience of the art world. It facilitates personalised learning and develops independence, communication and leadership skills. It also has a positive impact on engagement and other areas of the curriculum such as literacy.
