Last week, we hosted Dame Liz Forgan, Chair of the Arts Council. Dame Liz Forgan was extremely impressed with the learning taking place in a dance workshop with The Place and a music lesson. Dame Liz Forgan spoke to both children and staff about life at Charles Dickens Primary School. Following her visit, Dame Liz Forgan said
‘The Charles Dickens School is a shining example of creative teachers using the arts to help even very young children grow in confidence and the ability to express themselves eloquently. It was a delight to see children so absorbed, so focused and so genuinely creative’
What a super thing to say! We are so proud of the children and staff. We also feel so lucky to work with inspiring organisation such as The Place on a regular basis.
