Our Artsmark Journey ...

Going for Gold!

Royal Cross is on a journey to achieve Gold Artsmark status.

This means we are building on the Creative Arts and Culture curriculum already in place to enrich our pupils’ lives and learning through a range of creative experiences.

We work closely with a range of profesional practioners from across the whole range of performing, visual and musical arts.

This includes input from across the Deaf community, which bring opportunities for our children to experience expressive visual arts through the medium of sign language.

We strive to ensure pupils are given opportunities to have ownership of their creative experiences and our school productions are based on narratives developed by the children, which celebrate the diverse cultures represented within our school community.

Our pupil's unique Deaf culture is prioritised through inclusion and collaboration that takes place between Deaf Studies and expressive performing arts.

As part of our Artsmark journey children connect with the local community, widening their world view and opening out learning from the classroom.

This includes cultural activities such as regular visits to the Harris museum in Preston, visits to the local libraries, visits to Space and trips to the local theatre in Lancaster.
