Art and Design


"Every child is an artist.

The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up."

- Pablo Picasso

Our Intent


Art and design has a significant and valuable role to play in the overall ethos of our school. We aim to provide an art curriculum that will enable all children to reach their full potential through equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works.


Incorporating art into the wider curriculum is intrinsic to teaching within our school.Children here thrive, immersed in a curriculum that is ignited by the power of art and design. Lessons are creative and dynamic whilst enabling us to extend and enrich childrens' learning. We pride ourselves on using the work of pupils to provide a vibrant and stimulating environment throughout the school.


Our vision is to ensure that all children not only develop their artistic techniques, but are also able to think critically and appreciate the contribution that art makes to our wider society.
