Research indicates creative arts, including music, dance, drama and art significantly impacts cognitive development, increases self-esteem, and actively engages everyone in learning.
At Moreland we believe that the arts offer opportunities for the children to explore, express and communicate their feelings whilst gaining experiences of the wider world. Through experiencing the arts, children develop their creativity, self-esteem and confidence.
Children are at Moreland Primary School are provided with a broad and rounded education. All pupils are given opportunities linked to a wide range of arts experiences as part of and in addition to the curriculum. We employ specialist music and dance teachers and all children have the opportunity to learn an instrument during their time at Moreland as well as taking part in performances and concerts both in and out of school. We believe all children should have equal access to the arts and we are committed to offering our children the chance to visit many of London's cultural venues and work with well known arts organisations such as the London Symphony Orchestra. All the children take part in the National Gallery's Take One Picture project in the summer term as part of an art led enquiry project based around a painting in the National Gallery collection.
As well as providing a creative and enriched Arts curriculum, we also provide a range of exciting clubs for the children, including many that are arts-based (choir, performing arts, dance, art and drumming).
