Synopsis

'A beautifully reasoned argument, in the age of cuts, as to why the arts absolutely must be at the very heart of primary education' - Jon Snow



Studying the arts, including visual arts, music, dance, drama and literature, has numerous benefits across the primary curriculum. A truly creative curriculum has the power to motivate and energise pupils; it develops creative and critical thinking, problem solving, language, and fine motor skills. But what is the best way to invest in and improve arts education across a school? Drawing on interviews with successful school leaders, case studies and her own extensive experience working in the education departments of the Courtauld Gallery, the National Gallery and Somerset House, Ghislaine Kenyon presents simple, inexpensive and practical ways to integrate the arts across the primary curriculum.



The Arts in Primary Education shows how resources already present in schools, such as picture books or the outdoor environment, can be used to develop a creative culture. With a focus on long-term initiatives including partnerships with art institutions and the training and personal development of teachers, the book also presents clear and accessible explanations of the benefits of integrating the arts across a school. Backed by research and evidence and complete with images and descriptions of artworks, this guide is ideal for helping develop a whole-school arts curriculum to enrich learning and raise attainment in all subject areas.

Ghislaine Kenyon began her career as a primary school teacher before working in the education departments of numerous art galleries in London, including the Courtauld Gallery. She subsequently became Head of Education at the National Gallery and then Head of Learning at Somerset House. Ghislaine now delivers CPD and INSET training to teachers in primary schools in London and Birmingham.
