Our Arts Vision

For all children to experience the arts in order to broaden horizons, boost confidence, raise aspirations and improve health and wellbeing.


Creativity

At Greenholm, we define creativity as the use of original ideas to produce something new. We believe that everyone has different skill levels, different confidence levels and a difference in circumstance. The Arts at Greenholm provides everyone with the opportunity to be creative, no matter what their skill, confidence or circumstances

We want to broaden the horizons of our pupils by introducing them to a wealth of diverse art forms from all different cultures. We believe this opens up the eyes of our children to the world around them and creates a tolerant and welcoming society which embraces difference. To achieve this, we ensure all children receive an external arts-related visit each year, with the aim of experiencing different cultures through the arts. We invite the pupils to appreciate, challenge, explore and create from their experiences, building global citizens who will enrich society through their ideas and actions. Additionally, Greenholm uses the arts as a method of common language with children around the world in our international projects.

We want to boost the confidence and raise the aspirations of all our pupils by using the arts as a platform for children to express their creativity, regardless of skill or confidence level and regardless of their circumstances. We achieve this through ensuring every child at Greenholm has access to the arts each school year. This can be through in-school teaching, outside agency workshops or visits to arts institutions. We value the creativity of every child and provide varying opportunities for self-expression.

We want to improve the health and wellbeing of all our pupils by ensuring they are active and happy members of our school community. All of our children will be given a range of arts provision throughout each year, whether in-school or as a visit to an arts institution, giving children access to all forms of art during their time at Greenholm. This gives pupils the platform to show their skills and creativity in a variety of ways and recognises success as more than just academic achievement.
