Artsmark and Arts Award
We are committed to helping schools and young people achieve their Artsmark and Arts Award.
We have brought together a network of 10 schools to take part in Write Sounds. Collectively we have identified a need to boost attainment in creative writing and are developing an innovative approach with children’s literacy expert Pie Corbett and The Beat Goes On supported by Artswork, the South East Bridge organisation.
This network of teachers are using body percussion, rap and spoken word to increase skills, confidence and attainment in literacy. Additionally, secondary schools involved will bring experience and expertise to support transition and to raise attainment, building stronger links between teachers working at KS2 and KS3 through direct participation in this project.
Participating schools are:
As part of Write Sounds, these schools are also delivering Arts Award and working towards achieving their Artsmark.
