Professor Pat Thomson and Dr Liam Maloy have recently held two webinars focussing on the work of the Researching Arts in Primary Schools (RAPS) project.
Are the arts in trouble in English schools? Enrolments in secondary school arts subjects have fallen, and time devoted to the arts in primary schools is apparently greatly reduced. Creative teaching and learning also appears to be very patchy, with frequent media reports of schools using very ‘traditional’ methods in all subjects and for all topics. RAPS will shed light on how these issues appear in primary schools.
