Alongside reading, writing and maths, we nurture our children's talents, interests and abilities in all curriculum areas. We want our children to have a broad and deep learning experience at Fairholme. They will learn how to be creative, how to explore new ideas, how to appreciate art, music, dance and drama, and how to express themselves.
Every term (Christmas, Easter and Summer) we present out Arts Award to one child from each class, from Reception to Y6, in recognition of their achievemnt within one or more of the arts forms - these include music, art, photography, creative writing, drama, and dance. They are identified by teachers for their outstanding commitment or progress in these areas.
We provide lessons for all children across Key Stage 2 to learn a musical instrument. These are free of charge to our families, and demonstrate the school's commitment to nurturing and developing the whole child, and providing a variety of educational opportunites to all our children, which they might not otherwise experience.
