Our Art, Design and Technology curriculum aims to inspire pupils and develop their confidence to experiment and invent their own pieces of artwork. The sequence of learning is designed to give pupils every opportunity to develop their ability, nurture their talent and interests, express their ideas and thoughts about the world, as well as learning about art and artists across cultures and through history.
We want pupils to participate, enjoy and develop their skills within the context of an enriching, challenging and relevant art curriculum.
We aim a to develop children's artistic competencies, build confidence in their ability and build the foundations for a lifelong love of art.
Our Art, Design and Technology lessons align with our core values and the objectives laid out in the EYFS and National Curriculum. Our planned progression of skills ensures our children are increasingly challenged as they move up through the school.
Our spiral curriculum, embeds essential knowledge and skills that are revisited with increasing complexity, allowing pupils to revise and build upon their previous learning.
Lessons incorporate various teaching strategies including modelling and independent or collaborative work.
Adaptive teaching ensures accessibility and progression for all learners. Knowledge organisers support pupils in securing factual knowledge and recall of key skills and vocabulary.
In our school, Art is celebrated, personal achievements are valued. Our Art curriculum is integral to whole school well -being, happiness and holistic development.
Our pupils leave school equipped with a range of artistic techniques and the creativity to enable them to study Art, Design and Technology with confidence and enjoyment at Key stage 3. We shape children into expressive and experimental artists who appreciate the impact of art on politics, culture, and people.
