Artsmark Award


In July 2018 we were delighted to have been awards with the Artsmark Gold Award.

"Harnham Infants school have made very positive progress through Artsmark and the highlights have been the commitment to CPD and shift in overall philosophy and vision. Kickstarting Artsmark with a quite intensive investment in CPD seems to have paid dividends with teachers more competent in using various arts materials and processes as a means of broader teaching and learning. An impressive array of external partners have worked with the school to provide additional opportunities, the deepest of these relationships being with the local theatre. The school's revised Arts policy makes a strong case for the merits of the arts and the broad contribution they can make through a balanced curriculum. For the future, it would be helpful to hear more about the nature and effect of CPD on staff and children's progress, and to get a feel for plans to further embed your growing arts expertise within the heart of your school's curriculum. Longer term, you might wish to consider ways you can share your journey and its benefits with other schools."
