Pupils Get Creative Display Their Art at in Class and Tate Modern


Byline: ABBIE WIGHTWICK Education editor abbie.wightwick@walesonline.co.uk

The Lead Creative Schools Scheme has involved matching schools with creative professionals, using teaching and learning methods specifically designed to be practical and relevant to real-life curriculum demands and provide new ways for young people to engage with subjects, developing increased motivation for learning.

"Within just three years, we have already started to see that by nurturing and developing the creativity of pupils, they're taking steps to achieve their academic potential and grow as well-rounded individuals, closing the gap between the best and least well performing pupils. …
