Description

Are you a Head teacher working tirelessly to transform your school ready for OFSTED success? Are you ready to develop your arts offer in order to further enhance this process?

Colville Primary School and A New Direction invite you to attend this headteacher networking event, hosted by Colville through the A New Direction Advocates programme.

In the last six years, Colville Primary School has developed from being deemed by OFSTED as a ‘satisfactory’ school to achieving ‘outstanding’ in March, 2019. Jagdeep Birdi, Head teacher of this highly successful school will be sharing how he went about moving the Arts in as a priority, thus raising the ethos, culture and standards across the board.

Also included in the agenda for the morning, will be a clear rationale about how to financially meet a diverse and broad after school and curricular arts offer. Within this, the greater depth and breadth deemed so essential by OFSTED is able to be met.

As an arts advocate for the organisation A New Direction and Music Lead at Colville, Emma Stiman will share how she conceptualised a 6 year strategic development plan, curriculum, assessment scheme and budget for Music and the Arts. Having gained ‘Sing Up’ Silver and ‘Artsmark’ Gold, she is now shaping arts advocacy in order to win the school the Artsmark Platinum award.

The morning will include presentations from the Headteacher and Music Teacher of Colville Primary School on:

  • Finance in the Arts in Schools

  • The Value of the Arts in Schools

  • How to Decide upon the Quantity and Develop the Quality of the Arts.

  • The Colville Music Curriculum.

A New Direction Advocates are also invited to present in conjunction with the above topics. Presentation slots are for 7 minutes, please contact Naranee (naranee.ruthra-rajan@anewdirection.org.uk) if you are interested in presenting.
