Cookham Rise Primary School



We want our school community to SHINE as artists and creators.




Cookham Rise is committed to providing children with a rich and engaging artistic experience. Most importantly, we want our children to enjoy their art journey and be excited to engage in creative activities that develop artistic skills and allow exploration. We believe art is a vital subject within our broad and balanced taught curriculum that not only enriches our lives but also lays the foundations for future employment in creative industries.  We want to enable all children to feel able to think and act creatively and to be part of a community that celebrates the richness of artistic talent in our immediate locality, the wider world and from different periods.


We are committed to constantly developing our art provision. We look for opportunities to widen our knowledge and refresh our creativity, which supports us to approach our teaching with vigour and passion.
