dot-art Schools is proud to be an Artsmark Partner supporting schools on their Artsmark journey and responding to the Cultural Education Challenge. Artsmark is awarded by the Arts Council England and has been designed by schools, for schools, to align with School Improvement Plans and support core EBACC and STEM priorities, giving the curriculum breadth and balance. As well as recognising schools that are making the arts come alive, the Artsmark award is a practical and valuable tool for enriching a school's arts provision whatever the starting point.
