At St Michael's we believe that The Arts are a fundamental part of the curriculum and define the arts as music, dance, drama, art and literature. We aim to develop a life-long interest and appreciation for the Arts. We believe that the Arts offer opportunities for the children to explore, express and communicate their feelings whilst gaining experiences of the wider world.

Through experiencing the Arts, children develop their creativity, self-esteem and confidence. All children regularly participate in key stage performances and all the Arts play a key part in class assemblies and Collective Worship. During the year we offer a variety of outings, take part in different Arts projects, competitions etc. We have peripatetic teachers who visit the school weekly to teach individual or group instrumental lessons. We hold an annual Arts week, which may include visiting artists or musicians. We actively encourage parental support and participation in these events so that we can draw upon the expertise within our community.
