Richard Avenue awarded Artsmark Gold

We’re pleased to announce that the school has been awarded an Artmarks Gold award for demonstrating how our key art forms are defined, delivered, managed and developed across both the curriculum and extra-curricular activities.

Inside of the Artsmark Gold Validation Report, which you can read in full here , the inspectors said:

Richard Avenue Primary School has evidenced strength in leadership at all levels demonstrating their commitment to art and culture as an essential entitlement for all. They offer Arts rich creative teaching and learning both within and beyond the curriculum.

The inspectors went on to praise how they saw arts being implemented throughout the school on a recent trip:

The application form and school visit combined to highlight: the breadth and depth of creative, meaningful learning through a range of experiences; a wide range and depth of art form expertise readily shared across the staff team, complimented by a good use of professional artists for added value and sustainability
