  • Intent

    We believe that our pupils should be inspired by artists from different times and cultures and be confident to use a variety of elements, tools and techniques to create an effect in their own works of art and design. We aim for our pupils to be able to analyse artwork and discuss its content, form and mood.

  • Implementation

    Art is taught three times a year in six week blocks. This allows for more effective learning in which teachers can focus on subject specific knowledge and skills. If appropriate, units are linked to other topics to help ensure that learning and outcomes are purposeful and relevant. Skills are progressive throughout the key stages. Pupils use sketch books to record and develop ideas and final pieces are displayed. The subject is enriched by visiting artists who work alongside pupils to create art for display around the school.   

  • Impact

    We have high expectations for art and teachers have clear guidance, written by subject specialists, on what learning should look like in sketch books and in final outcomes. Pupils enjoy art and engage enthusiastically with our bespoke curriculum. This results in pupils developing a love of the subject that will continue in secondary school and beyond.
