~ School recognised for its commitment to bringing the arts alive ~
Pupils and staff at Earley St Peter’s are celebrating after receiving a prestigious Artsmark award. Artsmark is Arts Council England’s award for schools that champion the arts and strive for excellence. It celebrates schools that embrace the arts across the curriculum, bringing them to life for children and young people.
In order to become an Artsmark School, Earley St Peter’s had to develop their arts and culture provision to achieve a broad and balanced curriculum. This was achieved by creating an overall plan that was committed to and delivered across the whole school.
On receiving the award, the Chair of Governors, Jane Peters, said: “We are extremely proud of achieving our Artsmark Award. We are committed to delivering a high quality art and cultural education and we look forward to continue to grow with Artsmark”.
Darren Henley, Chief Executive of Arts Council England, said:
“I would like to congratulate Earley St Peter’s on their Artsmark Award. As an Artsmark school, Earley St Peter’s exemplifies how the Award can help schools to achieve a broad and balanced curriculum, ensuring 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.”
