Cantrell's Statement of Commitment and Case Study have been reviewed by our assessment panel and we are delighted to inform you that Cantrell Primary and Nursery School has been awarded an Artsmark Gold Award. Congratulations!

The panel has made the following comment about your submissions:

The panel was impressed by Cantrell's commitment to the arts and commends the ethos of 'taking a risk' to 'be involved in the shaping of a generation of British artists'. It is unusual for a primary school to have an arts policy, and to carry it through with a wide range of practitioners in school, out of classroom experiences of national significance and supported by Arts Award. There is whole school arts planning, and demonstrable effects on pupil outcomes.
