Horfield Primary School: Our Artsmark Journey

“We want children to be creative and confident learners, and clearly the arts are a very effective way of enabling them to be those people that can take their place in the world with the arts central to what they do”

Horfield Primary School, located in the Westbury-on-Trym area of Bristol, have recently been awarded Artsmark Platinum Status. A keen advocate for creativity in the curriculum, Headteacher Jenny Taylor said:

Horfield prides itself on offering a rich, broad and balanced curriculum, recently recognised by the UKLA for groundbreaking work, particularly in the arts.
