Impact

Delight supports schools in closing the opportunity and attainment gap for children affected by disadvantage or additional needs. Our programmes aim to improve children’s engagement in learning, develop essential life skill, improvement their overall wellbeing and increase confidence to explore their creativity and broaden horizons.

Wellbeing

82% of children felt proud of what they had achieved. (2020-21 programme delivery)

Learning

64% of children eligible for pupil premium increased academic outcomes (2020-21 programme delivery)

Creative

71% of children wanted to do more art, dance or drama (2020-21 programme delivery)

Thanks to funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, in 2019, Delight appointed independent evaluator ImpactEd to undertake a multiyear evaluation of our programmes. On completion of the evaluation, we’ll share their research to inspire and encourage other artists and educators to effectively embed arts-based learning within primary schools.
