Arts at Doxey

Doxey Primary School’s Vision for The Arts

At Doxey Primary School we believe that the Arts are integral to a broad and balanced curriculum. We are a school where everyone’s efforts are valued, ambition is nurtured and where the potential of every child is developed regardless of their social or economic background.

Our values are an integral part of our school for children and adults. We show pride in ourselves, our endeavours and achievements; we show curiosity in our learning; we persevere to overcome difficulties and to improve our personal targets and we encourage self-belief.

Parents and carers are encouraged to be involved in their children’s learning and in the life of the school through, performances, productions and other art events that are organised. We believe that using art across a large range of curriculum areas helps pupils to access their learning more effectively.

We define the Arts as visual art, music, dance and drama and through these we develop key skills of research, analysis, independent working and presentation;

We are determined that all our pupils will enjoy rich experiences in music and performing arts, including learning and performing on a musical instrument. Every class receives music tuition from a music specialist once a week and build up their performance level to sit a music exam as an ensemble at the end of the academic year. The examiners join us from London College of Music Examinations to judge each ensemble. Last year we received 3 Merits and 3 Distinctions.
