We nourish imaginations and nurture creative expression.

At Charles Dickens Primary School, creativity means more than just the arts, although it’s still an important part of it. For us, it is a way of thinking and an approach to life. Our pupils learn to develop adaptable flexible critical thinking and express their own thoughts, feelings and ideas.

Whether that’s crafting a painting, explaining a complicated scientific process, resolving a conflict or constructing an argument, we actively develop children’s ability to confidently express themselves in a variety of ways and in an environment where they are encouraged to be themselves, take risks, fail and try again.
