Dunkirk Primary School

Dunkirk Primary School

The Arts

We strive to provide opportunities for children to express themselves in a variety of ways in order to develop their personal and social skills, raise their self-esteem and encourage creativity.

Our music, drama and art work is enhanced by regular visits out of school as well as by inviting a variety of people into school to enrich their educational experiences.  There are opportunities for all children to participate in school performances.  Our music curriculum is supported by music specialists and children have been involved in residential opportunities to play their instruments with pupils from other schools.

Dunkirk was one of the original thirty schools nationally to become a “School of Creativity” working with the Creative Partnership.  This is in recognition of our creative and innovative approaches to learning and teaching and provides us with opportunities to be involved in further research locally and nationally.

We provide opportunities for children and teachers to work alongside artists and other creative practitioners in and out of school to produce a range of exciting projects to share with our community.  This work extends our knowledge and understanding about how children learn.
