The Arts Council England Creativity Collaborative programme seeks to build networks of schools to test innovative practices in teaching for creativity and share learnings to facilitate system-wide change. Working alongside existing school structures, teachers, and educators, the programme seeks to co-develop creative strategy and pedagogy, test out approaches to teaching and learning, and evaluate their impact on learners, schools and communities. The outcomes the Arts Council want to achieve with the fund are as follows:

1. Young people’s creative capacity is nurtured, and personal, social and physical wellbeing and academic development is greatly enriched, reducing inequality across protected characteristics.
2. Career pathways are supported by skills developed through creative learning and thinking.
3. Teachers and school leaders are skilled and confident to teach with creativity and advocate for teaching for creativity pedagogies and practice across their networks.
4. Teaching for creativity is a whole school priority and practiced across the curriculum.
5. Schools integrate teaching for creativity across the curriculum including science, engineering and the arts.
6. The role of arts and culture in supporting teaching for creativity is understood, as are the conditions for establishing a culture of creativity in a school.
7. Schools work with a range of external partners including a university.

This interim report documents year one of the Billesley Primary School Creativity Collaborative. The report draws together findings from teachers, cultural organisations, the project lead, learners, and senior leadership. It offers insight into the successes and challenges of the Creativity Collaborative and concludes with recommendations for year 2.
