St John’s Meads C of E Primary School in Eastbourne has been awarded the British Council’s prestigious International School Award in recognition of its work to bring the world into the classroom.
Following a new and rigorous assessment process, we have once again received the highest ‘GOLD’ Artsmark Award from the Arts Council which reflects the outstanding music, drama, art, dance and creative writing opportunities we offer at the school. According to our preliminary report St John's Meads, “…demonstrated an excellent commitment to providing high quality arts provision that is embedded across the curriculum.” Much of the hard work putting together the portfolio of our work has been done by Mrs Emma Lewis. We thank her for her dedication to this achievement for the school. Mrs Lewis said “We are planning to celebrate our achievements in the arts during an open afternoon next term when the children will be able to display their art work which has been completed over the past year.”
