Our Arts Provision

Lordswood Primary school has a proud tradition of offering exceptional opportunities for children to develop as creative, imaginative and curious learners. We believe self expression is an essential element in developing self confidence and social skills and our children have the opportunity to sing every day, learn a musical instrument and take part in our many and varied clubs and opportunities.

 

Arts Education gives cultural reference points for developing literacy and linguistic skills and our creative curriculum links to our Power of Reading scheme. Cultural visits can be expensive to organise, but as part of our Griffin promise we guarantee inspirational visitors into school and trips to museums, galleries, theatres and concert halls. Developing a love of the Arts gives children individual and shared memorable experiences and this feeds into all aspects of our curriculum. Strong partnerships have been established with The Big Draw, The Big Sing, The Schools Shakespeare Festival and International Dance Day. The annual Griffin Arts Festival is a celebration opportunity to unite our community. We are proud that Lordswood Primary has been awarded Arts Mark Gold in recognition of this strong practice.
