Bigfoot Arts Education is a thriving company that delivers across the South West. We dedicate ourselves to providing schools with unique programmes that creatively enrich and extend the national curriculum. We focus on raising achievement in schools by promoting speaking and listening skills, communication skills and teamwork.
Bigfoot covers PPA and Supply using highly experienced drama facilitators to creatively enrich the curriculum and reduce the workload of the class teacher. We plan all sessions/schemes of work in collaboration with the classroom teacher and base our topic around any subject that the school chooses. These can be themed to cover any subject/topic required. Previous examples include: Friction, Victorians, WW2, Magnets, and Weather, amongst others.
Our After School Programme meets all 5 aspects of the Government's Every Child Matters criteria. These programmes run for an hour after school and can be arranged to suit the individual needs of the school.
Bigfoot also runs various projects throughout the school year. We run an interactive Healthy Schools programme that can help schools to achieve Healthy School status, and offer workshops to cover all aspects of PSHE work, using SEAL as our model in Primary Schools. Other ongoing projects include: Rapspeare (Shakespeare through rap), The Empire Windrush (Black History Month), Bigstep (Transition), amongst others.
We also offer a bespoke project service where we will design a programme to suit your individual schools needs.
