Priory Ruskin Academy has become one of the first schools to receive an Artsmark qualification under the new pilot scheme, being one of only ten schools across the UK to receive the qualification. The award acts as an opportunity to celebrate the excellent provisions in the arts that the academy offers.
As an Arts specialist school, the academy has many resources and creative techniques that are offered to their students across the Arts. ArtsMark will allow the academy to highlight areas of strength, assess areas that need developing and ultimately create a better environment for the students to develop their education within the Arts.
The scheme itself is structured around 7 key components and judged against criteria based on leadership, curriculum design, CPD, pupil engagement, range of subjects on offer, partnerships and values and ethos. Lead by Mr Alex Webb (Teacher of Art) and Mrs Victoria Rossington (SLT), the school is working alongside Arts Council England and the Mighty Creatives and aims to raise its current award status to platinum, the highest level of award.
