2016/2018

MONITORING AND EVALUATION

  • Our whole school understanding and commitment to equal opportunities through Arts and Cultural experiences ensure that we plan for and provide equal educational opportunities for all pupils so, incidences of discrimination based bullying are very rare. Pupils report that our Artis sessions have increased their confidence and prepared them for High School; hey report that they’ve learnt to see things from others’ points of view; they feel valued (February 2018)
  • Arts and Cultural Ed in our school provides opportunities to promote: -
  • Spiritual development: Helping pupils to recognise their own creativity & that of others by finding solutions to problems so our pupils work very well together
  • Moral development: Through helping pupils to reflect how art affects the environment, so that they can make informed choices when planning and creating.
  • Social development: Through helping pupils to recognise the need to consider the views of others when discussing creative ideas, and by working on collaborative projects, so they make the most of different strengths and interests within a team.
  • Visits by Olympic athlete (female), Magistrates (male and female), etc. allow pupils to understand gender does not restrict opportunity.

MONITORING AND EVALUATION

  • Vibrant curriculum in place – opportunities for pupils to receive Arts, Sports, live Theatre, and visits linked to other faiths, (Church, Synagogue, Mosque and Gurdwara visited) so our pupils appreciate Arts from other Cultures & religions and understand that race and religious differences are a positive aspect of our world. Next Step in Diversity Fortnight 2018 = visitors to school, including parents and community leaders.
  • Through our commitment to the Arts, our pupils have opportunity for personal expression which plays an important part in their personal development as an individual. Music reflects our culture and society and so the teaching and learning of music in our school is planned to enable children to better understand the world they live in. History is planned and delivered to enable pupils to investigate their past and that of others, understanding how these are linked.
  • Black History Month – Assemblies focus on the achievements of civil rights movement. (October 2017, to be repeated and enhanced from 2018)
