Tracking Arts Learning and Engagement
Ark Helenswood is recognised nationally as a school that is at the forefront of arts education. At a crucial time for arts learning in the UK, we continue to recognise the arts as a vital part of our students’ learning and development.
We have been chosen to take part in a major national scheme which will track the effectiveness of arts education and the students’ learning and engagement over a three year period. The programme involves a partnership with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Tate modern and Nottingham University and we have been chosen to take part as a recognition of the high quality arts work that we deliver.
The most recent blog from our first TALE assessor in the school can be read at TALE Blog.
Bullying is an unacceptable form of behaviour in this school which will not be tolerated. At Ark Helenswood we define a 'bully' as someone who causes unhappiness and fear in someone else over a period of time; a person who wishes to exert power or influence over others which results in persistent distress being felt by the victim. This includes any out of school incidents involving the use of text message, mobile phone, or any other electronic means, which then subsequently involves students within the school.
