Creative Learning Award

Sponsored by Creative Scotland

The Scottish Education Awards recognise early learning and childcare settings and schools that have developed a vibrant and progressive culture and climate of continuous innovation.

The culture and ethos should promote respect, ambition and achievement while improving outcomes for all learners in ways which eliminate inequity.

For your nomination to be considered, you are required to respond to the statement above and in detail to the following questions. This should include practical activities and projects your educational setting has undertaken, detailing the impact these strategies have had on pupils, staff, parents and the community.

  • How does your educational setting promote creativity for pupils and staff? Do you have a strategy for developing creativity in learning within your improvement plans?
  • How is creativity being developed across all curriculum areas, and interdisciplinary projects?
  • How do the staff in your educational setting ensure that all pupils are supported to develop creativity in ways which build on their personal strengths whether as individuals or in group activities?
  • What evidence can you provide that leaners are given responsibility for planning and managing creativity projects?
  • What partnerships have you developed to build and support the development of creativity?

What are the outcomes of these approaches in terms of impact on:
