Do you measure up?

These questions are based on the Black Country Partnership self-evaluation forms

* Are you working with colleagues and outside artists to improve the school environment?

* Have you spent time thinking about the relationships between creativity on the one hand and teaching and learning styles on the other?

* Do you deliberately look for evidence of creativity in all subjects across the curriculum?

* Do you explore every avenue to bring artists and craftspeople into your school?

* Do you have an inventive programme of school visits, followed up by activities other than just writing and presentations?

* Are your governors committed to promoting creativity? Is there a named governor?

* Is creativity a feature of your staff professional development programme?

* Does your school improvement plan take account of the importance of creativity and the arts?
