The Arts at Thurstonland First School...
The curriculum at Thurstonland First School has focused on the Arts over the past 4 years. The ability of staff to deliver the curriculum with the Arts as a driver has been one of the reasons our school gained an outstanding Ofsted report in 2013. They are embedded in everything we do, right across the range of all curriculum subjects. This is why we are passionate in our belief that our school is a creative and successful place to be because our ethos is underpinned by Art, Music, Drama and Dance. Our vision is also set out within our combined arts policy.
Following on from the art work done by our year 4 and 5 pupils for the Bienale Festival, entries were made to a competition run in conjunction with The Big Draw. Huge congratulations to two of our pupils who, along with two other children won the competition and have seen their designs printed on a t-shirt!
