The Arts Mark is awarded by Arts Council England and recognises oprganisations who inspire young people through arts and culture. Arts Mark support schools' who bring arts and culture to life in every classroom through a shared commitment to high quality art and cultural education.
Culture and diversity development are at the heart of the curriculum for the children at Boundary Primary School. We are focused on the development of the children’s character as well as their academic achievement; tolerant, understanding, well rounded, resilient, imaginative and creative pupils are what we strive to encompass through our continued engagement with arts and culture education.
Our future developments for Boundary are to authentically and actively involve the children in the development of the Arts through a representative Pupil Arts Council, who will begin to organise and choose cultural experiences for their peers.
Increasing opportunities for our children to perform:
The children enjoyed a great lesson with Keira all about keeping safe on the internet. They became superheroes tasked with helping people who had forgotten the rules of internet safety. They learnt: how to store passwords and who to share them with; what personal information is and what not to disclose online and who to talk to if they feel uncomfortable about a situation or they are unsure if something is safe. The children also know that their actions online leave a digital footprint and information and pictures that are shared, cannot be easily undone.
