Lead Creative Schools Scheme Practitioner Callout - Springwood Primary, Cardiff
Deadline: Mon 20 May 2024
Springwood Primary School, Cardiff is looking for one or perhaps two practitioners to work on a LCS project. ENQUIRY: How can we introduce creativity into the school to support themes of transition, identity and diversity?

Springwood Primary:
is a school with prior LCS experience
already embraces the High Functioning Classroom
has an expressive arts centre/performance space which could be used more
has a positive attitude to expressive arts and digital media
has lots of outdoor space, including forest school areas, an edible garden, and an orchard
has a charming little pug called Loki who escorted me round the building.

In a relatively short space of time, the school has become much more diverse and multicultural. It is keen to develop a creative toolkit around the following themes, which all link together:
improving intercultural relations
supporting and developing pupils’ sense of identity, belonging, and empathy
improving pupil transitions, whether it’s simply welcoming pupils into the new year in September, or receiving new pupils from different cultures who join the school part way through the year and may feel intimidated.
developing creative learning generally.

The school wants to focus on introducing aspects of accessible drama practice and games, along with podcasting and the spoken word. Additional elements may include story, art, and writing. We are open to suggestions on how this could be implemented. We are open to working with 1 or perhaps 2 practitioners (who might come as a team OR be chosen by the school separately, to work together).

The practitioner fee will be based on a rate of £300 per full school day. Some planning time will also be paid at the same rate. Travel is not included.

Deadline: midnight on Monday 20th May 2024
