Saatchi Gallery Schools Prize

Beacon Rise Primary School

Bristol, United Kingdom

At Beacon Rise Primary School we understand that the arts subjects are powerful and unique forms of communication that can change the way children feel, think and act. As an integral part of culture, past and present, they can help children to understand themselves and relate to others. The exploration of different aspects of art develops children’s ability to appreciate a wide variety of art forms and to make judgments. It encourages active involvement in different forms and helps children to acquire a sense of group identity and togetherness. We believe promoting art can increase self-discipline, creativity, aesthetic sensitivity and fulfilment.
