Artsmark Success – Silver Award

20 October 17

RPA is pleased to announce that last week we received confirmation that we have been awarded the Artsmark Silver Award, which we will hold for the next 2 years. The panel comments:

“Your children are offered equal opportunity to participate in a diverse range of arts and cultural experiences and you recognise the importance of development opportunities for your staff in these areas. You understand the value of working with arts and cultural organisations and your children and young people have an opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of arts and culture and you are working to build on the foundations of your provision.”

Well done to all the staff and children for their commitment and hard work, and particularly to Mrs Lord, who led our Artsmark application.

Welcome Back

We would like to wish a warm welcome back to all the children, their parents and carers, families, and friends at the start of the new academic year. We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead as the children begin their learning journey and being able to share their wonderful work throughout the year with you.
