Arts Award is a nationally recognised qualification for children and young people aged 5 – 25 years old. It can be delivered in a number of ways including theatre visits, one-off workshops and after school clubs.
We offer a variety of activities to support children in achieving their Discover and Explore Arts Awards.
Participating schools are supported on their Arts Award journey by our Polka Arts Award adviser, who will act as assessor, facilitator and mentor throughout the process.
For more information please contact our Arts Award Adviser, Heidi.
Artsmark is awarded by Arts Council England to schools committed to high quality arts education.
