Since becoming an independent charity in 2006 we have worked with more than 100 arts organisations across the UK and introduced over 100,000 children to the arts.
- 100% of teachers who were independently surveyed felt that their pupils had gained personal skills as a result of their involvement with Children & the Arts.
- In the 2013 Unicef report on child well-being in rich countries, the UK ranked 14th out of 29 developed countries. With regards specifically to feelings of contentedness towards education, the UK ranked just 24th out of 29.
- After involvement in our Start project, 75% of teachers independently surveyed felt that their pupils had improved self esteem, and 87% saw an improvement in academic skills.
