Art and Design
From Early Years onwards pupils are encouraged to try out different mediums in various contexts, interpreting the world around them through colour symbols and materials. Whilst being taught techniques and styles, pupils refer to the works of well-known artists. Art is not just a standalone subject but is often linked to other subjects or topics. ICT plays an important role in the children’s experiences.
We use local artists to work with us to enhance the children’s experience of art.
Design Technology provides opportunities for all pupils to apply and use a range of concepts in different media. Pupils will be encouraged to use a variety of tools and equipment to produce quality products. They will be expected to evaluate their designing and making, to judge their own performance and to identify ways in which they can improve their work.
