Artis can benefit an entire school. Regular feedback highlights children’s boosted levels of confidence and self-esteem. Heads see the evidence of this in the classroom through increased concentration, improved behaviour and an overall eagerness to learn.
Extracts from a report by an Ofsted inspector commissioned by Artis and comments from heads support this:
- Artis provides inspirational curriculum enrichment, through a fully inclusive programme, delivered by trained specialists. Outcomes for children working with Artis Specialists are excellent. Their learning during Artis sessions can be directly related to national curriculum requirements, but is not constrained by them.
- Children working with Artis Specialists gain in self-confidence and self-esteem through their engagement in group-work in dance, drama and music.
- Children clearly enjoy their lesson time with Artis Specialists.
- Children who speak English as an Additional Language and those with other access issues benefit from the Artis kinaesthetic approach to learning.”Richard Crozier, Ofsted Inspector

If you ask our children what they most like at school, Murmur usually tops the list.
