Become a truly creative school

How can you be creative in schools whilst at the same time meeting the Government’s focus on measurable basics satisfying Ofsted’s agenda? Hays Education discusses on how being creative in schools can be achieved.


As the UK’s leading education recruiter we are committed to sharing meaningful insight and information with the education community. We have worked in partnership with Tim Brighouse and David Cameron on a number of nationwide breakfast forums to share best practice with senior leaders in schools throughout the UK.

We are therefore delighted that they have written a report which compliments the Creative Curriculum sessions. This document embraces the true meaning of becoming creative and sets out ten challenges which we think have to be addressed if creativity is to be a characteristic of a school’s life.

The report sets out thoughts on the following key topics:

  • Finding the right staff in the first place

  • Creative leadership

  • Creative review

  • Creative staff development

  • Making the school environment creative

  • Creative student involvement

  • Creative parental and community involvement

  • Creative curriculum depends on the arts

  • Creative teaching, learning and assessing

  • Creative timetables enable creative experiences
