Artsmark Gold Award

1 April 2019 (by Helen Wright (helenw))

We've achieved our Artsmark Gold Award!

We're thrilled to announce that we have been awarded our Artsmark Gold Award in recognition of our fantastic arts provision. 

Artsmark is Arts Council England's award for schools and education settings that champion cultural education.  It celebrates settings that embrace the arts across the curriculum, bringing them to life for children and young people.

In order to achieve our 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.

Darren Henley, Chief Executive of Arts Council England, said:

"I would like to congratulate Kings Oak Primary Learning Centre on their Artsmark Gold Award.  As an Artsmark school, Kings Oak Primary Learning centre 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."

A huge well done and congratulations to all involved!
