Hello and welcome
Hello and welcome to the Artsmark community. You are part of a growing number of schools who are championing Arts and Culture and we are here to support you.
The Artsmark Development day is a full day of CPD for two members of staff (one must be a member of your Senior Leadership Team). The purpose of the day is to explain your journey ahead, to support high level planning for the arts and culture in your school and to give you the opportunity to network and share ideas and planning with other schools in your area.
You will only need to register 1 ticket per school-this covers both members of staff. Please enter details of both members of staff under 1 ticket.

The Artsmark Partnership Programme is
The Artsmark Partnership Programme is an Arts Council England endorsed network of arts and cultural organisations who can support Artsmark schools and settings.
This training is for National Portfolio Organisations who have identified working with Artsmark schools as part of their Goal 5 ambitions.
Artsmark Partners will be supported to develop deeper, longer term relationships with educational settings and strengthen their offer for children and young people. Artsmark settings will be supported by Partners to further develop and embed their arts and cultural provision.
This event will also include an opportunity to network with schools who are beginning their Artsmark journey.
This workshop is for those
This workshop is for those who have submitted a Statement of Commitment, completed the majority of intended activity and are writing their Case Study.
The two hour session will help you to reflect on your Statement of Commitment, review the arts activities that you have implemented, get support in areas you are unsure about and hear from other schools at the same stage as you.
Arts Connect will provide support on drafting your case study through:
- Reviewing your action plan and any sections of your Case Study that you have completed
- Synthesising the evidence from your activities
- Reflecting on the Self-Assessment tool
- Making sure that you have correctly filled in the Case Study document
Participants should bring along a copy of their action plan, Statement of Commitment and any other evidence that they wish to refer to.
There will be opportunities to hear other schools’ stories and find out how they are approaching this part of the Artsmark journey.
