Primary School, DRAMA BASED

PPA Cover


Creative, topic based PPA cover

We offer high quality drama and performing arts based projects in PPA time - based on each class’s current topic.

Every partner school’s programme is bespoke. Through a combination of drama, music and theatrical techniques we develop the children’s confidence and communication skills while delving into the existing curriculum.

Star Partnerships helps schools to make the very best of PPA time with tangible outcomes.

Having joined Newlands in September 2016, working with Star Partnerships was a new experience for me - but one I would happily repeat. Diana, our Star Partnerships facilitator has been a real ray of sunshine, and is truly part of our team.

The pupils look forward to their sessions each week and know that it is building up to a performance for parents - which gives them a real purpose and audience to perform to.

Throughout the year we have worked with Star Partnerships, developing and trialling units of work.
As a school we feel that they have listened and responded to our thoughts and ideas.

Drama can be such a powerful tool, reaching pupils who could easily be missed otherwise, teaching them life skills and giving them successes that that they will always remember.

Working with Star Partnerships is a great way to achieve all of this.
— Warren Gargan, Acting Headteacher, Newlands Primary School


Key Points


The arts projects we deliver with each class embrace and extend the topic their teachers are teaching in the classroom.



Each half term ends with a Creative Conclusion - often a performance to parents or perhaps an assembly to other children.

This gives each class a real focus, and a sense of achievement each half term.
