What is the Arts Mark?
The Arts Mark is awarded by Arts Council England and recognises organisations who inspire young people through arts and culture. Arts Mark support schools’ who bring arts and culture to life in every classroom through a shared commitment to high-quality art and cultural education.
The Arts are firmly at the heart of Boundary Primary School and are valued by staff, children and parents. The teaching of Music, Art, Dance, Drama and Musical Theatre are taught in ways accessible to all and enable the development of their natural talents.
We have worked hard to incorporate the Arts Mark quality principles in our teaching and believe that they are a fundamental part of our pupil’s education.
How will the Arts Mark impact the children of Boundary Primary School?
Culture & Diversity Development is at the heart of the curriculum for the children at Boundary Primary School. We are focused on the development of the children’s character as well as their academic achievement; tolerant, understanding, well rounded, resilient, imaginative and creative pupils are what we strive to encompass through our continued engagement with arts and culture education.
Our future developments for Boundary are to authentically and actively involve the children in the development of the Arts through a representative Pupil Arts Council, who will begin to organise and choose cultural experiences for their peers.
