Art and Design

In our school the teaching of art and design develops in pupils the self-belief needed to be creative. Creativity, through art, craft and design is valued and celebrated by the school community.

Our art and design curriculum engages, inspires and challenges pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They are taught how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.  We encourage children to develop their creative and imaginative talents through learning skills and techniques and using a variety of materials and tools. They learn to appreciate works of art and use artistic language to describe paintings, sculptures and other artefacts.
