Art and Design

We believe that creativity, challenge and inspiration are fundamental to the development of every child.

Our Art and Design curriculum aims to develop a deep understanding and appreciation of the role creativity has played culturally and historically, through an exploration of key artists and craftsmen through time.

We aim to increase confidence and competence in the use of different media, such as pencil, charcoal, paint, collage, inks, textiles and clay. Art teaching is embedded in other subjects, as well as taught discreetly to ensure progression. We promote the necessary skills for our children to develop their natural ability to be expressive and creative and we aim to instill pride by achieving finished work that is of a high standard.

We use the 2014 National Curriculum Art and Design planning document as well as other resources for planning and teaching.
