Paul Hamlyn Foundation My Creative School offers a new model for relationships between arts organisations and schools. Facilitated and supported by A New Direction (an Arts Council Bridge Organisation) this project will see schools choose to work with arts organisations based on how those organisations respond to priority areas identified in School Improvement Plans (SIPs). The focus of activity will be using the arts to teach non-arts subjects in primary schools across three outer London boroughs and various locations within Kent.
