Hello, for those who haven't met me yet my name is Paul Hartley (this is me with my dog Montee) and I am your school creative agent for Curious Minds and the creative partnerships programme. I have had the pleasure of working with the school last year on the enquiry project and worked with Mrs Dickinson and a group of year 8's to plan the first project. I must say this has been one of my successful schools with a will to take risks and explore ideas of pupil voice and creativity in the curriculum. I am looking forward to working with the school for the next year and seeing what comes of the residency with Chris Millard from Create Multimedia and other project ideas developed through the new creative network. Please have a go at using the blog it can be a good reflective tool. below are some links to other blogs to as examples:

Happy blogging

Hello and welcome to out new blog. If you would like to join please can you speak to Mrs Dickinson in the arts department and let us know your e-mail address to make you an author so you can start posting. If you are not sure what to do we can organise a little training session. To get you thinking we wanted to pose the following questions about how to get this network going! Please let us know your thoughts:

Q1 What do you want to achieve from having a creative network?
Q2 How can the network function, communication etc?
Q3 What will the challenges be in creating and maintaining a network and how can we over come them?

We would also like you to think about where you feel creative, can you capture a moment in your day where your creativity is on show? Please take a picture and up load it on the blog with your thoughts.

Look forward to hearing from you
