Artsmark Award

26th March 2019

ARTSMARK AWARD

Today marks the start of HMS's journey to achieve Artsmark accreditation. Artsmark is the creative quality standard for schools and education settings, awarded by Arts Council England. The Artsmark award provides a clear framework for teachers and education professionals to plan, develop and evaluate their arts and cultural provision.

At Highfield we are proud of our Arts offering and the award will build on this over the next year.

Today Mr Rutherford is attending a conference with accredited providers such as the Sunderland Empire, the Baltic and Dance City in Newcastle. The conference focusses on how the Arts can be further embedded in classroom based learning.
