What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our Art & Design curriculum here.



We aim to provide a high-quality art and design education, which not only engages, inspires and challenges pupils, but will also equip them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.


We want our children to see themselves as artists and think critically about art.   It is our intention to teach our children so they will find enjoyment in creative art, find a sense of purpose, achievement and fulfilment in artistic expression and develop skills and use a range of materials and techniques competently.   Our children will learn to study and record the world around them analytically and will develop the appropriate vocabulary to help them understand and discuss their own work and that of others and they will be encouraged to appreciate and evaluate the work of a range of artists from their own and other cultures.
