The Arts at Holy Trinity

As a church school we acknowledge that all of our pupils are significant to God.  We therefore value each child’s unique personality and aim to develop their character, talents and abilities to the fullest in His name.  Our arts curriculum is an intrinsic part of this, unlocking the potential of each child, so that they can flourish.  This is also in keeping with our status as a UNICEF Rights Respecting School and fulfills our obligations under Article 29 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

 

The arts provide children with opportunities to explore, express and communicate their feelings about the world they inhabit, whilst gaining experience of it.  They foster an understanding of other people, cultures and events both contemporary and historical.  We are therefore committed to providing all of our children with a wide range of artistic and cultural experiences that draw upon the diversity and wealth of opportunity London has to offer, as well as devoting curriculum time to developing and nurturing children’s own artistic talents.

 

The arts make a huge contribution to the British economy and offer a wealth of employment possibilities.  We believe that is our duty to ensure children have the skills to access these opportunities later in life and are therefore striving to develop an arts curriculum that is relevant and responsive to the our rapidly changing world.  There are many transferable skills that come from learning about the arts, such as resilience, creative problem-solving, team-working and increased social connectivity.  We feel these skills are essential to our children’s overall development and future economic success in the 21st century.

Artsmark is the creative quality standard for schools, accredited by Arts Council England. As part of our commitment to the arts, we will be working towards the Artsmark over the next 2 years.  Artsmark provides a clear framework for us to plan, develop and evaluate our arts and cultural provision to ensure that we are offering our children the best that we can.
