With the new curriculum launching in January, you may be considering bringing an artist, creative or cultural organisation into your school to stimulate fresh thinking in Expressive Arts or creative learning. This handy checklist will guide you through everything you need to think about, including initial discussions, planning, and delivery.
It covers good practice in: setting out intentions (from artistic intention and professionalism to relevance and inclusivity) to planning the activity and working with pupils and staff.
There are also:
• video case studies
• links to funding opportunities (see also our Funding blog and detailed spreadsheet of funding opportunities)
• links to resources including Facebook groups
Check out the Opportunities section of our website where you can search for and find sorts of artists, creatives and cultural organisations, as well as posting what you’re looking for as an ‘opportunity’ (it’s really easy – find out more in this blog).
Whether you’re a teacher looking for a creative person to share skills and inspiration with your pupils … or a creative person looking for teachers and pupils who can benefit from your input: make sure to CREATE as well as SEARCH for opportunities on the Opportunities section of the A2:Connect website.
