At our school, we understand the important contribution that Art and Design make to pupils in developing their creativity, freedom of expression and appreciation of artists, designers and architects.
Our curriculum is designed to ensure that all pupils achieve the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum, no matter their background or disposition.
Elements of the curriculum ensure that pupils analyse the impact of art and design on the wealth, culture, history and creativity of our country and the world. The curriculum exposes pupils to a broad and balanced range of artists, designers and architects to reflect the multicultural society of Great Britain today. Pupils are exposed to a wide range of media on their journey through Early Years Foundation Stage to Year 6.
Our Art and Design curriculum has been mapped carefully to ensure that pupils acquire and then build on knowledge and skills. Pupils develop an expanding knowledge of artists, tools, techniques, media and styles as they move through Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage One and Key Stage Two, whilst also being provided with regular opportunities to revisit and refine previously taught content.
