At our federation we place a great emphasis on a broad and balanced curriculum.  A broad and balanced curriculum incorporated a priority towards a holistic and creative approach to education.  Our Art and Design curriculum enables children to express themselves in a creative and imaginative manner.

By the end of each key stage children will have given the opportunity to experience a range of media with a variety of different starting points, influences and genres appropriate to their ages.

Pupils will leave the Federation with a strong foundation in the key areas of Art and Design.  They will have enjoyed developing an appreciation for Art and Design. Through their experiences they will be able to recognise a range of Art or Art features as well as developed skills in:

  • Drawing
  • Painting
  • Craft, design, materials and techniques
  • Knowing and applying the formal elements of colour and form

Throughout their primary career children will have made progress in:

  • Making
  • generating ideas
  • formal elements
  • knowledge of artists
  • Evaluating

This progress in skills will enable them to have a freedom of expression that will challenge the expectations of our cohorts and help to raise aspirations in the subject.
