We are pleased to announce that we have achieved the Artsmark Silver Award, awarded by the Arts Council England.
The panel commented that: “Highfield Junior School’s Artsmark experiences have shifted markedly from the original Statement of Commitment, from a sharp focus on music to a broader approach to teaching the arts in a more integrated way. This has led to a refreshed commitment to art and design and drama within English, as well as maintaining the already high-quality music provision. Teachers seem to have embraced this arts-rich pedagogy, and children have enjoyed taking responsibility for nurturing and valuing the arts through newsletters and reviewing school displays.”
Well done to all involved.
