As the leader of the Arts Council in school, Mrs Stuart is delighted to announce that Bewsey Lodge has been awarded the Artsmark Gold Award!

The following comments were received from the panel that assessed our application.

Bewsey Lodge Primary School has continued its Artsmark journey by developing drama provision, employing an additional Key Stage 3 arts specialist and focusing on how to assess progression in arts subjects. One afternoon a week is ring-fenced for arts and sport activities. Senior leaders drive and develop arts and cultural provision across all phases to establish and maintain good practice and you link arts and culture to wider learning opportunities for children and young people so that they can apply their arts learning in a wider context, for example using arts practice to support learning in literacy and other foundation subjects. Pupil Champions for the arts subjects help plan and deliver activity. The appointment for a Key Stage 3 arts specialist has led to an improvement in the quality of the art curriculum.

Congratulations on your Artsmark Gold Award!
