Arts Mark Logo

Artsmark is a creative quality standard for education settings, accredited by Arts Council England. The award supports settings to develop, evaluate and celebrate their arts and culture provision, and has a huge range of benefits:

  • Culture and creativity increases pupils’ confidence, critical thinking, communication and literacy skills, improving attainment and bringing core subjects to life.
  • Artsmark provides a clear framework for teachers to plan, develop and evaluate arts, culture and creativity across the curriculum.
  • Settings are supported throughout their Artsmark journey by a network of local partners, providing training, advice, practical teaching resources and introductions to leading cultural organisations in your area.
  • Settings are awarded Silver, Gold or Platinum, based on their achievements. 
  • Artsmark provides evidence of how a setting meets its spiritual, moral, social and cultural requirements for Ofsted.

As an Artsmark Partner, we can help you identify local resources and training in arts education. We work with a wide variety of creative practitioners and arts and cultural organisations across many disciplines including Music, Art and Design, Dance, Drama, Creative Writing, Digital Media and Film. we can also highlight subsidised music opportunities through Sound Foundation Somerset 

We can help you baseline your arts provision; identify where you are excelling and help you with targeted support where it’s needed. This can be especially useful when it comes to identifying your Artsmark case study or creating an action plan to enhance your offer.
