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

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.
Noak Bridge's talented artists have showcased the amazing work they created in the Master classes with Local Artist Mrs. Anderson.
Children from Noak Bridge were joined by children from Rydene Primary, Lee Chapel Primary, Phoenix Primary and St. Teresa's catholic Primary.
Ryedene Primary School partnered with Basildon Council to organise and curate this incredible event, which also hosted work from Signals Media and the Children's Support Services.
