The Fallibroome Academy has been appointed as a Lead School for Cultural Education by the Department of Education as part of a national initiative to promote the Arts through the provision of high quality CPD and opportunities for both emerging and established teachers. Fallibroome will be supported in this role by Mottram St Andrew Primary Academy, who have a designated Specialist Leader in Cultural Education. Together they will work with other members of the Silk Alliance to support colleagues with curriculum design and delivery. As part of our Cultural Education designation we are also working closely with our ‘bridge organisation’, Curious Minds, to provide a portfolio of CPD opportunities, resources and contacts to ensure that the cultural education provided by schools is rich, deep and engaging. Examples of good practice will be available as will bespoke CPD to help schools develop their own programmes of study and events.
