The Arts play a crucial role in enabling visual, kinaesthetic and expressive learners. 

They bring colour, magic and inspiration into the lives of our young people and teachers.

BEP are committed to increasing the engagement of the Arts, Culture and Creativity for all our young people and to also support schools in delivering a high quality provision that can contribute to School Improvement, teaching and learning, pupil attainment and Ofsted.

We offer bespoke support to schools in order for them to enhance their provision, to offer curriculum balance, and to help them access the rich array of Independent Artists and Arts Organisations working in Birmingham and beyond. We are creating city -wide networks with major Arts Organisations for teachers across all phases of education to encourage peer support, to offer CPD opportunities and together with our partners, raise the awareness of our citywide commitment to the Arts and their place in Education.

To get involved you can email us to talk about your needs, it could be commissioning Artists, provision / curriculum advice or simply wanting to join our networks and meet the brilliant, creative teachers and Artists in our city.

In this section you will find details of events, news from the Arts Sector, case studies of innovative and valuable projects across different art forms and how they are contributing to school improvement and pupil attainment.

Our Arts Coordinator Andrew Fox recently supported these schools to commission and recruit an artist for their collaborative art project – it looks amazing! (Click to view the larger image)
