Artsmark

Recognising the high quality arts provision in your setting through Arts Mark.

What is the Artsmark Award?

The Artsmark Award is the only creative quality standard for schools and education settings, accredited by Arts Council England. We support settings to develop and celebrate their commitment to arts and cultural education.

In 2015, the programme was refreshed to align with School Improvement Plans and support core EBACC and STEM priorities, giving the curriculum breadth and balance.

Why Artsmark?

  • Build young people’s confidence, character and resilience through arts and cultural education
  • Use Artsmark’s clear and flexible framework to embed creativity across your whole curriculum and use it to address school improvement priorities
  • Celebrate your long-term commitment to cultural education with pupils, parents and your local community

Working in the arts helps learners to develop creative problem-solving skills. … Art instruction helps children with the development of motor skills, language skills, social skills, decision-making, risk-taking, and inventiveness.

If we remove any element founded in creativity, art and design, all that remains are piles of materials that require human imagination and visual thinking. Art forces humans to look beyond that which is necessary to survive and leads people to create for the sake of expression and meaning.
