We are always working to extend our curriculum for our pupils, whether that is in the classroom, on Educational Visits, during extended schools or in the community. This academic year (2017/18) we are working towards ARTSMARK as a way of extending our provision and evaluating what we consistently provide as a school. Last year during the summer term we achieved a heritage award form Historic England for our heritage study in the local community. This was a wonderful project which is still ongoing and was a forerunner to us applying for the ARTSMARK Award.
If you have time and are interested please read our statement of commitment for this year. This outlines all that we aim to do as a school and celebrates all that we already doing. This also made us realise that we do far more every day than we actually realise which is regarded as just 'normal' practise in Criftins.
Mrs Hardwick has a First Class Honours Degree in Contemporary Art. She is a wonderful support to both children and staff and an asset to the school. Mrs Hardwick is leading the development of arts across the school supported by the Headteacher and Federation Governors. She is your point of contact if you would like to get involved in school. We welcome local artists an arts groups and encourage the community to come and have a go!
