- Grant amount: £149,805 over 24 months
- Fund: Teacher Development Fund
- Date awarded: 2018/19
- Location: London
Schools from the Windmill Cluster and Brixton Learning Collaborative, led by Sudbourne Primary, will investigate the impact of using opera and visual arts to develop Growth Mindsets amongst their pupils. The approach will explore how arts-based learning can encourage higher-order questioning, risk-taking and problem-solving skills to raise attainment for pupils experiencing disadvantage. Working with Pegasus Opera and artist Liz Atkin, the teachers will experiment and take risks alongside their pupils. This approach will embed a cycle of analysis, experimentation, reflection, refinement and application.
