We have a commitment to arts education and have been awarded Artsmark Gold in recognition of this and Sing-Up school status.
All children have music lessons with a specialist music teacher who focuses on singing, playing percussion instruments and our instrument of choice for whole class instrumental tuition, the ukulele!
Drama is taught as part of the English curriculum and, in addition, children perform in bi-annual class assemblies for parents. There are opportunities throughout the year for children to audition for key stage or whole school productions. Dance is taught as part of the PE curriculum and we also have after-school dance classes and visiting dance practitioners who lead workshops with children.
During our annual Arts/International Weeks children enjoy a range of activities to give them a taste for performing arts. In the past they have experienced African drumming, Irish folk music, Brazilian carnival dancing, Zumba, Capoeira, Maypole dancing, Bollywood dancing, Russian dancing and Chinese dragon dancing.
