Curriculum Intent Statement
Performing art is a creative subject in which all students are required to develop a cultural understanding of the Arts, and how they can be applied.
It is a vital element of education that not only requires students to use their imaginations and develop new skills, but endeavours to allow students to express views and opinions in a safe environment. For this to take place, students are encouraged to take risks, and work in groups to develop team work and critical response, principals that can be reflected in all elements of education.
A positive experience of the Performing arts is therefore implicit to create empathetic students who are resilient, and professional in performance situations.
We encourage students to think beyond their front door, and to have an empathy and understanding of the wider reach of the subjects.
Through the curriculum, we cover a wide range of topics, concepts and skills across the Arts which will allow all to achieve including those who are not performers, for example, in other technical aspects of Performing arts. We aim to ensure that students can see how what they are learning can be applied to the wider world.
All students will be given the opportunity to reach their full potential in the Performing arts, not only in a classroom setting, but through wider opportunities within the school, and local community.
Through this we aim to create cooperative, confident and ambitious students.
