Art and Design

The intent of our Art and Design Curriculum is to:

  • Provide opportunities to express themselves, promote independence and encourage initiative through their art experiences.
  • Develop knowledge of materials by allowing them to experiment freely and encourage them to use materials sensibly and safely.
  • Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design.
  • Develop an understanding of great artists, craft makers and designers and use this knowledge to reflect on, analyse and critically evaluate their own work and that of others.


The implementation of our Art and Design Curriculum:

Our art and design projects are sequenced to provide a coherent subject scheme that develops children’s skills and knowledge of visual elements, art forms, artists and art movements and ensures there is complete coverage of all national curriculum programmes of study.

Projects are placed alongside other subject projects where there are opportunities for making meaningful connections. For example, the study of Picasso has been placed in the same teaching sequence as the history project A Child’s War and the painting ‘Guernica’ is explored in History, Art and Design and English.


The intended impact of our Art and Design Curriculum is that:

By the end of KS2, our children will be both skilled and empowered to appreciate visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a special way of understanding and responding to the world. We focus on progression of knowledge, skills and discreet vocabulary. Our art curriculum enables children of all abilities to be able to develop their knowledge and understanding of the work of artists, craftspeople and designers from a range of times and cultures and apply this knowledge to their own work. The children will learn to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes. When reflecting they will learn to discuss their thoughts, ideas, processes and evaluations of work.


Mrs Smith is our Subject Leader for Art and Design.
