Support and Guidance

It can be challenging for schools and teachers to be an expert in every subject.   The ArtForms Arts Development team offer support to schools through a variety of routes.

School support and guidance

As part of the Learning Improvement 0-19 Team, the Arts Development Team offer schools support in, and through, the arts. The Primary Art Leader Network and the Primary Design and Technology Leader Network are designed to support primary school subject leaders.  Meeting three times a year, each session has a themed focus and includes national and local updates, including up to date research.

For schools who require more bespoke support, we have a 2 day support package: Support in the Arts.  This could include: an Arts review; Strategic visioning and action planning; support with Art and D&T assessment; curriculum planning; middle leadership development; NQT support; whole staff development. 

All of our support packages can be purchased through Leeds for Learning.  If you have any specific questions about the packages or how we can help you deliver the arts in your school, please contact jane.zanzottera@leeds.gov.uk
