Your enthusiasm for the potential of arts to change children’s lives was lovely to read. Of note is your commitment to providing specialist arts teachers, ensuring every child gains an arts award and the wide range of partnerships you have developed, including hosting and facilitating networks. Going forward, you could focus on developing the pedagogy of your arts practice and embedding it across your curriculum, providing a wider range of artform clubs for your children and increasing the role of children’s voice in choosing provision. Congratulations on your Artsmark Silver Award!
