Creative Arts

We want children at Holt to be creative individuals and to experience a myriad of creative experiences. From acting to singing, art to music, our children are involved in a host of activities which allow them to develop new skills, express themselves and discover hidden talents.

The whole school curriculum design identifies the specific contribution that the arts, craft and design makes to the pupils’ creative and cultural development, making use of local resources, art galleries and creative practitioners working in the locality.  High expectations are established throughout the school through inspirational and interactive displays, showcasing learning of the arts and other subjects through the medium of art.       

Opportunities to work in partnership with art professionals in a variety of ways are seized.


Our school has regular visits from story tellers, dance coaches, specialists running arts/music workshops to support and enhance our curriculum alongside school trips to galleries, theatres and museums.  Our children have many opportunities to watch, take part in and contribute to dance, drama and musical events.
