The Artsmark Award
Endeavour Academy have just started their journey towards the Artsmark Award.
What is the Artsmark Award?
Accredited by the Arts Council England, Artsmark aims to support schools to embed arts, culture and creativity across the curriculum to ensure that every young person has the opportunity to be creative, and to experience and participate in a diverse, high-quality cultural education.

What we are working on at Endeavour
Using the Artsmark flexible framework we are reviewing our current provision and planning how to put arts, culture and creativity at the heart of our curriculum.
Post-Covid we have re-introduced mosaic, music therapy and clay sessions by inviting professional artists / therapists into school to work with our children and young people on a 1:1 or small group basis.
We have started working with external organisations to increase opportunities to link up with local schools and community organisations. The first of these was proudly exhibiting our Noah's Ark display in St Mary's church, Barton as part of Oxfordshire's Arts week 2022.
We are currently working with two artists as part of Oxfordshire's Cultural Education Partnership project - The Gift and look forward to delivering the art canvas we have made for St Swithun's CE primary school later this summer.
