Headteachers and school leaders interested in finding out more about the Lead Creative Schools Scheme are invited to attend a briefing.

From 23 September, schools will once again be able to apply to participate in the Lead Creative Schools Scheme. Using the transformational creative learning pedagogy, Creative Habits of Mind, the scheme will adopt blended learning models, adapt to the unique needs of each schools’ circumstances, and continue to support whole school change to prepare for Curriculum for Wales 2022.

What is the Lead Creative Schools Scheme?

The Lead Creative Schools Scheme provides the opportunity to explore creative approaches to teaching and learning with the support of creative agents and practitioners.

Each project is unique and is designed to help address specific challenges identified in the school’s development plan. In addition, it aims to nurture the creativity of learners, raise attainment aligned to Welsh Government’s priorities and support whole school change to prepare for Curriculum for Wales 2022.

658 schools have participated in the Lead Creative Schools Scheme with over 1,700 teachers having experienced the benefit of collaborating with creative professionals to explore creative approaches to teaching and learning. Schools have reported that their learners have nurtured their creativity, increased engagement, and made improvements to attainment across the curriculum.

Schools interested in to become a Lead Creative School are invited to sign up to attend an online briefing session. You can register for the sessions below using Eventbrite. You will then receive a link to a Zoom meeting.
