Artsmark processes, resources and timescales may have slightly altered. Read more about the changes to Artsmark due to COVID-19.
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.
Artsmark is a framework for teachers and school leaders to embed arts and cultural education across the whole curriculum. It is a national community of education settings who champion arts and culture. Artsmark provides:
The Artsmark Award is the only creative quality standard for schools and education settings accredited by Arts Council England. Artsmark is awarded at three levels: Silver, Gold and Platinum.
Artsmark is open to all primary, secondary and special needs schools, pupil referral units, youth offending teams and sixth form colleges.
Artsmark is an Arts Council England programme, which means only settings in England (including BFPO schools) are eligible to register.
Artsmark is flexible to the needs of individual settings and can fit around your planning cycles. Most settings take up to two years to complete their Artsmark journey.
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.
The Artsmark fee is £500 (£250 for small settings with under 100 pupils).
Come and join our growing network of educational settings championing arts, culture and creativity.
