Art and Design Curriculum
"If I could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint." Edward Hopper
In line with our vision of children becoming their best versions we believe that art is a vital part of children’s education and has a significant and valuable role in the taught curriculum, as well as the enrichment opportunities we offer our pupils. The art curriculum will develop children’s critical abilities and understanding of their own and others’ cultural heritages through studying a diverse range of artists.
We teach a knowledge and skills-based art curriculum, which gives opportunities for children to express their creative imagination as well as practise and develop mastery in the key processes of art: drawing, painting, printing, textiles and sculpture. Art contributes to children’s personal development in creativity, independence, judgement and self-reflection.
