At Star of the Sea we believe in fostering open ended exploration of creativity.

We believe that by introducing key skills, materials and ideas, each child is then able to explore their own creativity. By creating a safe and nurturing environment, pupils are encouraged to take creative risks and learn from their journey, rather than by heading towards a pre-determined end result.

We want to enable all pupils to feel able to think and act creatively. That means exploring all aspects of creativity: personal and social, exploring art for a variety of reasons, in a  variety of contexts. Most importantly, it means enjoying the journey, so that pupils want to engage in creative activities, and so that they can grow to appreciate and value the importance of art as a highly subjective and individual experience, but one which is capable of bringing people together.
