Artsmark Silver Award
In December 2022, we received news that Costessey Primary School received the Artsmark Silver Award. This award is a huge success for our school which staff and children have worked so hard to achieve.
‘The Artsmark Award is the only creative quality standard for schools, accredited by Arts Council England. It supports schools to develop and celebrate arts and cultural education, putting creativity and wellbeing at the heart of the curriculum. Artsmark ensures every young person can be creative and access a diverse, high-quality cultural education.’
As a school, we pride ourselves on the curriculum we deliver for the children. We hold the Arts in high regard and ensure that every child can express themselves through the Arts as much as possible. The Arts Council have stated:
‘In order to achieve their Artsmark Award, Costessey Primary School had to develop their arts and culture provision to embed a broad and ambitious curriculum. This was achieved by creating an overall plan that was committed to and delivered across the whole school.’
Well done to everyone at Costessey Primary! You can see our certificate which is displayed in trophy cabinet in the school foyer.
