After months of hard work the staff and pupils at Thameside Infants and Junior Schools came together to celebrate their achievements with a hands-on sharing day for parents to showcase the varied work they have been doing as part of their Creative Partnerships Change programme.

Our dynamic practitioner team of dance, film, music, web design and storytelling specialists, have done a great job working over recent months to help support the schools to place creativity at the heart of their teaching, help to raise engagement and support increased attendance levels. The schools now both have great new websites and exciting plans for independant work over the coming terms.  All the pupils also designed their own individual re-useable cotton bags for their parents, that carried the ‘It’s Cool To Be In School’ message.

The event culminated in a fabulous combined school choir with string sections singing Elbow’s “One day Like This” and even received a good luck message from the band in advance of their performance. What a pleasure to work with such lovely schools and practitioners.
