Artsmark is an Arts Council initiative which is designed to help schools evaluate and expand the artistic and cultural activities they offer to pupils.

Schools are assessed in many areas including arts in the curriculum, extra-curricular arts activities, how they work with artists and arts organisations and how well arts work impacts on staff development and the wider community.
