Arts Co-Ordinator, Chingford Academies Trust (Waltham Forest)
Main areas of interest and development
I lead on Arts Award and Artsmark for the schools which form part of Chingford Academies Trust. I also run a number of outreach projects with primary and secondary schools focussing on London Curriculum Arts Award programmes. In the field of visual arts, I work in collaboration with William Morris Gallery, who host our Arts Award Area Network Meetings and also lead on writing and drama projects with the Barbican Centre.
I am very keen to work with schools in assisting students in receipt of Pupil Premium funding to develop their understanding of Arts and Culture in London and am currently carrying out a research project on developing cultural awareness with young people who are classified as “more able disadvantaged”.
