Art and Design Technology


We have ensured clear themes for Art and for Design Technology across the school from Foundation Stage to Year 6. Our intent ensures that children are exposed to rich cultural capital and to diversity through a creative and broad Art and Design Techonology Curriculum.


We implent our Art and Design Technology curriculum through a clear overview and progression in skills from foundation stage to year 6. Our Art curriculum celebrates diversity through a variety of artisist and mediums that our learners focus on. The curriculum seeks to celebrate traditional artisitc cultural capital as well as diversity within creativity. Our Art and DT learning inspires our learners through links to other areas of the curriculum (where this applies), for example English, Maths, History and Geography. We ensure that the children have extended chunks of time to produce their Art or DT learning in order to secure depth of learning and mastery of skills in these subjects. Our DT curriculum has a clear process from careful design through to end product.
