School pride in arts award

Colgate Primary School is very proud to be one of only 46 schools in West Sussex to have been awarded Artsmark.

This award is in recognition of the real commitment that Colgate has made in providing high quality Art and Design, Drama, Music, dance and Creative Writing opportunities for its pupils.

Taking part has allowed us to develop our Arts provision and it has been wonderful to see the pupils become more self-confident, creative and excited about learning.

Our Artsmark assessor said that ‘Colgate pupils experience imaginative high quality partnerships which are well researched and provide curriculum enrichment as well as good links with parents and the wider community. Art and Design is a particular strength of the school.’
