Central Primary School has been awarded Artsmark Gold Award by the Art Council of England! This is an incredible achievement and we are very proud this award.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Bulaitis for all the hard work that she did as the Creative Arts leader in our school for years. We look forward to continuing to develop our Creative Arts curriculum in the future!
We’ve copied the statement made by the Arts Council below for you to read as well.
“You have clearly evidenced how the Arts form the very fabric and life at Central Primary. The many long-established partnerships are having a positive impact on not only your staff but your pupils too. Your pupils are very much benefiting from the rich and varied arts curriculum you provide such as literary art, podcasts, clay tiles, music appreciation and Young Peoples’ Theater in addition to music, art and dance. Your commitment to providing developmental opportunities for your staff is exemplary, such as your Arts Lead taking part in Leaders for Impact led by ROH, the Voices Foundation in training teachers to teach choir and the funding of external courses for your Dance teacher. Your outreach work in supporting the training of new teachers and the setting up and developing of the Watford Creative Arts Teachers’ Network is a promising foundation to help shape and influence policy on the Arts at a local authority and national level in the future.
To develop further and building on your good reputation in the Arts and cultural provision you could collect evidence that demonstrates the leadership role you have taken in supporting other settings with designing their curriculum and the difference you are making to other settings. Whilst your pupils take part in CPD for teachers from other schools, it is not clear if these pupils take a leadership role in delivering CPD. If this is the case, you could plan for opportunities for your pupils to deliver CPD alongside your staff.
Congratulations on your Artsmark Gold Award!”
