    Artsmark Gold Award

    We commend the outstanding commitment you have shown to developing a wide range of cultural and artistic opportunities for pupils attending Prycroft Grange Primary School. Pupils have benefited by having the opportunity to develop projects and shape the development of arts through the arts council, and your decision to increase the range of members was very positive. In the future members of the group may wish to share their learning, to support other schools develop their arts policies. You have also provided a number of authentic experiences for pupils and teachers, which have improved outcomes and enabled both groups to display their work at a local exhibition. The digital learning and library bus initiatives have been successful, with measurable effects and we look forward to hearing about how these develop.

You will then be in a strong p...

The project has had a huge impact on the children of Topaz class and as a result they have had benefitted from engaging activities that have extended their cross-curricular learning opportunities. This year, the children were required to sketch, create and paint their own canvas painting of a rainforest animal, linked to our spring term IPC topic Saving the World.  The children worked alongside several professional artists to produce their own bright and vibrant canvas painting. The project culminated in a ‘Topaz Exhibition’ at the Watts Gallery, where parents, family and friends were invited to celebrate their children’s creative achievements and engage in their education over a cup of hot chocolate. It was a wonderful experience that empowered the children to be proud of their learning, whilst sharing in the joy and pride...
