Interested in getting an Artsmark for your school?
Want to show that your school offers a broad and balanced curriculum?
Artsmark is a simple process helping you identify all the great cultural work your school currently does, what extra you would like to be offering, and helps you achieve that ambition. By undertaking that journey your school can get its Artsmark accreditation.
To find out more about the process go to the Artsmark website which has a wealth of information, testimonials, practice guidance to get you up to speed on the process. https://www.artsmark.org.uk/
If you want to know more contact us at HRAEN, we are always happy to pop in to school and have a chat.
We have a local development day coming to Bexhill in March so if you register before then you can be part of a local cohort that will go through the process together. Development days are usually based in Brighton.

Brede Primary School seeks to find two artists to support their work on developing writing at greater depth for their students. This project could be ideal for a writer and illustrator team. This is a project funded by the Rother and Rye Educational Improvement Partnership.
The project will focus on developing the students’ creative writing alongside their own illustrations leading to written outcomes and artwork for display in school. You would be working with students in year 5 and year 6. It will be expected that the artists will have experience of working with children and ideally will already have a DBS registered with the update service.
The work would be completed during the week beginning 10/06/2019 run with both artists present for the full school day for 4 days. The total fee including materials is £1500.
Expressions of interest to be sent to Nicole Cummins, Head teacher, email@example.com
A "long overdue" government pledge to boost mental health support for young people has been cautiously welcomed by charities who say it must go further.
The NHS Long Term Plan, published by NHS England, promises to help 345,000 more young people through community-based services including schools and colleges.
Crisis care, early intervention, and a "continuous care" approach that provides mental health support through to age 25 are also key areas set to benefit from the plan, which recognises that "between the ages of 5-15, one in every nine children has a mental disorder".
The long-awaited news comes amid ongoing sector demands for a "parity of esteem" - for mental health to be given the same status as physical wellbeing. Currently just a fraction of the NHS budget goes to child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS).
These updates are provided by the HRAEN steering group and comprise information we feel will be most useful to the HRAEN members. Please note that though we want to spread the word about creative activity much of what appears here has not been quality checked by HRAEN and consequently HRAEN does not systematically endorse the projects on this page.
