The Arts at Avalon

At Avalon School we place a crucial importance on the arts. In addition to discreet Arts sessions, Music, drama, Creative writing, dance and visual arts are embedded across the curriculum. We provide a wide range of inclusive opportunities and enrichment opportunities including lunchtime clubs and external projects. Our curriculum also demonstrates a strong commitment to high quality arts provision through the implementation of workshops, specialist projects and external agencies.

At Avalon, we value the arts in promoting communication skills and supporting pupils’ social and emotional needs. Many classes participate in Arts activities with a Thrive focus, supporting pupil’s emotional development. We also use the arts in therapeutic intervention with music and drama therapists commissioned to deliver these sessions.
