    Art and Design


    To deliver the art specific content set out in the national curriculum.


    We implement this through:

    • exposing children to a progressive range of art specific  vocabulary
    • exposing children to a diverse range of artists
    • engaging children in a range of skill based activities with a variety of materials and media
    • giving children the opportunities to experience art outside the classroom


    For our pupils to:

    • have a raised cultural capital
    • be able to understand and use art specific vocabulary
    • have mastery of a range of artistic skills
    • foster a love of the creative process
    • be inspired

    Progression and Sequencing 

    Art is taught through a thematic approach across the whole school. Each year we build upon five key artistic skills.

    Each year, these skills are built upon and children are exposed to a range of artists, subject specific vocabulary and have the opportunity to use a range of different media.
