COVID 19 – During this unprecedented time, Artsmark processes, resources and timescales may have slightly altered. You will find these changes here.
Some of these changes include temporary closures of new registrations and re-registrations to Artsmark. A nine-month extension to the Artsmark journey is in place for all settings that submitted a Statement of Commitment. For awarded settings, whose Artsmark award is due to expire before December 2020, we are extending your current award to 1 January 2021.
What is Artsmark?
A framework for teachers and school leaders to embed arts and cultural education across the whole curriculum. The only creative quality standard for schools and education settings, accredited by Arts Council England.
Artsmark supports settings to develop and celebrate their commitment to arts and cultural education.
Who can utilise Artsmark?
All primary, secondary and special needs schools, pupil referral units, youth offending teams and sixth form colleges.
How Artsmark works:
You will follow the stages below with the help and support of our dedicated School Engagement Managers, who facilitate and deliver Development days, one-to-one consultations and access to additional Artsmark resources to enable you to successfully achieve your Artsmark award.
Most settings take up to two years to complete their Artsmark journey, with a cost to achieve the Artsmark award status of £500 (£250 for small settings with under 100 pupils).
