Art  Curriculum Statement

We want to engage, inspire and challenge our children: equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As our children progress through the year groups, they will be able to think more critically and be able to develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design.

  • To promote our school values which are closely linked to British Values.

  • To offer children new and exciting opportunities.
