Taking part has a tangible impact on pupil attitudes, behaviours and skills around reading and writing, as well as on teacher enjoyment, confidence, knowledge and skills which we continue to evidence through academic and other partnerships. We work with partner schools to connect with local arts, heritage and community spaces through the festival programme. We seek to put a legacy in place post-participation, in the form of bespoke ‘legacy curriculums’ to embed ongoing creative, literary approaches to literacy, English and cross-curricular learning in schools.
