Purpose of Study
All children will be challenged to be inquisitive, compassionate, courageous and creative learners. They will have opportunities to influence their own learning through age appropriate and progressive themes and learning adventures.
Our Art and Design curriculum has been designed to engage, inspire and challenge every child, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As art, craft and design can embody some of the highest forms of human creativity, we positively promote the development of artistic skills throughout school. We believe children should be given time and opportunities to be artistic in their own unique way as well as develop appropriate subject specific knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum. Our school values art and design as a medium in which children can communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form and pattern.
