At Bedgrove Junior School we deliver a high quality creative arts curriculum where we want to inspire all children to engage in the joys of music, drama and dance. We provide a progressive skills and knowledge based curriculum to enable them to create and develop a passion for this subject and to succeed both within performing arts and beyond. We also aim to challenge the children to develop performance skills and confidence which will be transferable to other subjects within the curriculum. We aim to provide all children with a good knowledge within performing arts and music, to enable them to progress both outside of school, in extracurricular activities, and to prepare them for secondary school and beyond. We work hard to identify specific talent within children and work hard to ensure further opportunities are explored.
