Artsmark Silver Status

We have been awarded the Artsmark Silver Award in recognition of our work in school. Artsmark commended us on the clear vision we have in developing the skills and capabilities of our pupils within the arts curriculum. Our curriculum represents our diverse school community and local area. It also showcases innovative and pioneering national and global artists both past and present.
Please enjoy our online portfolio which will give you a flavour of some of the outstanding work our pupils have created over the past and current academic year.
Christ Church Has Got Talent
A highlight of our school calendar! Children get the opportunity to audition, rehearse, choreograph and perform to the school, governors, staff and wider school community.
"Sing for joy"
There is no denying we love to sing at Christ Church. It lifts our spirits and brings us together as a school, community and as an extended family.
We have participated in numerous exhibitions over the years, battling it out with other schools in competitions and harmonising with children from our cluster schools as part of a larger choir. We have written our own school song and had visits from singers and performers who have praised our skill and enthusiasm for singing.
Welcome to the Gallery
Every child in school created a piece of art which was framed and displayed in a gallery style exhibition.
The art was available to buy, many were purchased on the day, and we could not have been prouder of our budding artists. 
Harvest Festival
Every year we celebrate Harvest with a whole school assembly in which every child performs in some capacity, be it song, dance, poetry or prayer. We invite our community to be a part of this event with us and gather food donations to share with others.
Self Portraits - It's all about that face!
We start every year with a focus on Self-portraits. Each year group takes inspiration from a different artist, often suggested by the children themselves, and we create work in the particular style of that artist. Over the years, and across the school, we have traversed the globe and the decades, visiting everyone from Vincent Van Gogh to Andy Warhol. 
Take a Note
One of the skills we chose to develop for our Artsmark award was the ability to read and use musical notation.
We have worked with Mrs Harris for many years and she has nurtured our children as they have learnt to play the recorder and claranet. We have shared these skills with each other for occasions such as class assemblies, seasonal celebrations and "the big gig".
