Art & Design
Our vision for learning (Quoted from Teaching and Learnin policy)
The vision for our school is to provide our children with the best possible start in life through the provision of a vibrant, engaging and relevant curriculum where children are challenged and inspired to excel. We strive to develop a community of life-long learners who are ready to succeed in the 21st century.
Art & Design is a vital part of the Primary curriculum as it provides a means of expression for all children, regardless of their competence in verbal and written communication. It is a practical subject which stimulates creativity and imagination through the use of a wide range of materials. Art is very effective as a cross-curricular link, adding to children’s experiences and depth of understanding in other areas of their learning, from creating their own artwork and artefacts. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
