HRAEN aims to position itself as source of support to schools and teachers, delivering cultural opportunities for their pupils. We are aware that teachers recognise the importance of a well rounded education and we feel the frustrations that teachers feel when not able to do this.
We know we can't change government policy or rewrite the education system but what we can do is develop projects that aim to support and enable teachers to deliver high quality arts in the classroom. That said we continue to support national campaigns highlighting the importance of the arts in school throughout a child's education.
Our projects are developed working with our local schools, responding to gaps identifies by teachers and pupils to ensure that all schools in Hastings and Rother always have access to the best in culture and the arts.
