How can schools evidence the value of arts and culture in their curriculum?

An advocate from an arts charity, participating at the recent London Festival of Education, wanted to know about evidencing the arts in schools.

Professor Andrew Burn discusses his work in supporting arts assessment.  He concludes that allowing teachers sufficient time to consider student’s creativity may be the key to valuable judgment.  In broader debates about the value of the arts as against the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) curricula, he suggests that video games studios offer a future model of how both may be brought together constructively.
