Our curriculum intent for Art and design reflects the purpose and aims of the National Curriculum by helping our pupils to acquire an understanding of artistic expression and the variety of techniques, tools and materials that can be used. The curriculum is sequenced in long- and medium-term plans to help pupils accumulate knowledge of the different techniques and skills used to create, design and evaluate a piece of art.


The curriculum content is adapted to the context of our school and enhances pupils’ moral, social, ethical and cultural development by leading pupils to discover their cultural contributions. We encourage our pupils to question and discuss ways art and design can be used effectively in order to help us live sustainable full lives. The curriculum design helps pupils to promoting independence and encouraged children to use a variety of different research sources in order to create their own unique designs. The systematic introduction of new vocabulary allows children to better communicate their ideas and discuss their own projects.
