Ivanhoe Awarded Gold Artsmark Awards

We are so proud to announce that we have been awarded the Gold Artsmark Award from Arts Council England. Having worked hard to further develop our arts provision following our previous Silver award we are pleased that our efforts have been rewarded.

Some of the activities we have been involved in to gain the award have been,

• Photography workshops with local primary schools

• Arts outreach workwith primary schools

• Continued development of the Ivanhoe Arts Curriculum

Arts Council England said, “Your commitment to providing a learning environment in which the Arts thrive is strong, and you are clearly ambitious for your students’ participation and achievement in the Arts. You have used the Artsmark process as a mechanism for expanding your arts offer and increasing students’ uptake of arts subjects. You have also skilfully managed to secure investment in exciting resources, such as the stage lighting, a sound system, online music resources and a recording studio; all of which have enhanced your quality of provision. Music is a very strong element within your overall arts offer, and we were impressed by the way in which you ensure all pupils are included, by providing free music tuition and an instrument loan system for any disadvantaged students.

Although you deviated slightly from your original plans, we were impressed by the numbers of pupils opting to participate in the Arts Award programme, and the way in which this is inspiring your students to develop leadership roles in the Arts. For example, your Silver Arts Awards students are now Arts Ambassadors, leading extracurricular clubs, and beginning to embark on projects with local primary schools. Your Case Study sets out a clear direction for your future work to further develop the students’ advocacy role in other educational settings – we would be very interested to hear about the impact of this outreach work, as well as that of the work your Head of Performing Arts is undertaking with the Leicestershire Music Hub. Congratulations on your Artsmark Gold”Award!”
