Art & Design

It is our intent that Art inspires, engages and challenges pupils; equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent, create, develop and refine their own works of art, craft and design. The curriculum will offer all children the privilege of a broad developmental experience in both two and three dimensional art, together with the opportunities to enjoy, appreciate, discuss and critically respond to a variety of art, craft and design forms. The children will learn the necessary skills and build up an understanding of the way in which materials and media behave. The art curriculum will stimulate and enable all children to develop the confidence to explore and enjoy all of which the visual arts and its unique experiences have to offer and in doing so build on and develop skills which are essential to lifelong learning.

 As a school we value art in supporting children's social, emotional and mental health. There is a weekly art nurture group which children are invited to take part in; here they get the opportunity to take part in mindful drawing  and process art activities . In addition to this, whole school process art activities take place termly e.g. a Christmas doodle art afternoon, collage bunting. It is always interesting to observe children during these times as it enables us to see the children working without inhibitions and expectations, it helps us identify their individual needs so we can support them during other times.
