Our vision for Ramsgate Arts Primary School grows in response to the serious erosion of the arts and creativity in schools.
The cornerstone of Ramsgate Arts Primary School philosophy for education has creativity at its core.
We provide a high-quality, broad and creative education, through which every child can experience the joy of learning and also be supported to reach his or her potential. This is made possible through a relentless focus on high-quality teaching and learning, ensuring all children make good or better progress in reading, writing and maths. This academic rigor goes hand-in-hand with our belief that developing a love of the arts (music, art dance and drama) will enrich our children and offer them an all encompassing school experience.
We endeavour to nurture and build on creativity. Through our Arts Curriculum, our children are taught the skills of creative subjects. Our specialist teaching team guide children in learning the value of discipline, commitment and work ethic, as well as creative thinking skills. The result is children who, not only have a secure educational foundation, but also have the ability to think outside the box and channel their creativity, enabling them to succeed in our rapidly changing world.
We aim to create a calm, yet highly stimulating environment, within which every child can feel secure and grow in self-confidence. We support our pupils in gaining the necessary personal, social and academic life-skills to succeed in society today, as well as preparing them for a largely unknown tomorrow. RAPS classrooms are full of children who are motivated by positive, well-paced and purposeful lessons. We aim to develop autonomy in our children who develop into independent learners. Our staff are passionate about the children’s success and ensure that Ramsgate Arts Primary provides a first class education for every child.
