Arts Mark

In 2010, Penn Wood Primary school was awarded Artsmark Silver. This national award recognises a school’s commitment to the arts; to Art and Design, Drama, Dance and Music. At Penn Wood school, we are lucky enough to have a specialist Music teacher who help us with delivering the arts curriculum. Throughout the year, children also have the opportunity to work with a number of professional artists. Slough Music service is currently funding the Wider opportunities scheme at Penn Wood school, allowing all pupils in Year 4 to have whole class violin lessons. Beyond Year 4, pupils have the opportunity to continue learning the violin or another instrument in group lessons. Productions each year at Harvest, Christmas and at the end of year 6 showcase pupils’ talents in the arts. There are opportunities for children to continue their enjoyment of arts in a number of arts based after school clubs. These clubs include Dance club, Ballet club, Art and Design club, Choir and African drumming.
