Primary Phase


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.
