Artsmark award reaches more than 1 million children
Date Created: 26th Jan 2017
Since re-launching in October 2015, Artsmark has now reached one million pupils through over 2,500 schools across England – including more than 125,00 pupils (over 260 schools) in the South East Bridge region.
Artsmark is the Arts Council’s flagship award for schools. Re-launched in 2015 with a simplified structure, Artsmark champions arts and culture in a growing network of schools across England. The award supports teachers to plan, develop and evaluate high-quality arts and cultural education within a broad and balanced curriculum.
Arts and culture have been shown to build confidence, resilience and drive that helps children grow into happy, articulate and successful young people. Through the award, schools can also provide evidence for how they meet the spiritual, moral, social and cultural requirements for Ofsted.
