Our Artsmark Journey

Welcome to our Artsmark journey


In the Spring / Summer 2019 Noak Bridge Primary school started the incredible journey to achieve an Artsmark award.



What is Artsmark?


A framework for teachers and school leaders to embed arts and cultural education across the whole curriculum. t is 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.


This award is to recognise the quality of the provision for the arts within our school. The Artsmark awards: silver, gold and platinum levels for achievement - and we are aiming high!

Radion Project 


Shaun and Phillipa, local artists, are working to create a new public art sculpture on the side of the new cinema in Basildon Town Centre. They aim to involve different generations, age groups, and local schools within the project. This week, the week beginning 16th November, Noak Bridge Primary School have created leaf rubbings (frottage) to be included in the mural, every child has created a leaf image.


The art workshop activity included: 


  • an introduction to the new cinema and what a lenticular screen is.
  • Identifying why nature in the borough is important and what we can do to look after it and what role public art can play in this.
  • Working with lots of schools – idea of collaboration, working as a group.
  • The design of the mural so far and how your students leaf will be the key feature.
  • Art History – David Hockney vs Vincent Van Gogh
  • What is frottage and how to do it – Demo.
  • Identifying leaves with leaf identification card.

On Tuesday 15th September 2020 we received the amazing news that we have become a 'Music Mark School'!! We were nominated by the Essex Music Hub to The UK Association for Music Education for our commitment to providing high-quality music education, they recognised the value that we place on music and our dedication to offering and delivering a broad and balanced curriculum. We are so pleased and would like to thank Miss Fisher (Music Lead) in particular for her hard work to further improve our music provision.

Our Summer Arts Celebration 2019


During our 'Open Evening' we showcased our artwork created during Arts Week. The focus was 'sculpture' and children looked at works created by Giacometti, Dale Chihuly and Alexander Calder. The children worked in a range of media to explore structure, joining methods and aesthetics which may have been linked to their summer learning.
