Art and Design
Subject Lead: Mrs. Hoyte
Within the curriculum, art and design has been formulated to captivate pupils and provide them with the ability to be expressive, in ways which other subjects may not permit. Pupils are taught to acquire and apply many transferable skills. They are able to experiment as well as collaborate, which then propels them to form a new way of communicating through problem solving skills, self-discovery and discipline. Art and Design allows pupils to have an appreciation for creativity through the use of different mediums, tools and systems. Our vast culture and history is widely reflected through inspiration and imagination, therefore encouraging pupils to understand themselves and the world in a wider context.
Curriculum Intent - This is what we want the children to learn.
Holy Trinity CE Primary School believes that Art and Design is a vital part of our pupils’ education. The significance and value of this subject within the wider curriculum, instigates personal growth and challenges preconceived constructions. Studying this subject equips pupils with the knowledge, maturity and skills needed to have a voice and celebrate diversity.
The Art and Design curriculum develops pupils’ purposeful use of artistic skills, processes, and experiences as educational tools. Sequences of lessons and experiences help them to develop their understanding of artists’ visual language, and offers a variety of enrichment opportunities, which supports them in navigating life in a unique and profitable way. By providing a meaningful and relevant curriculum in Art and Design, pupils are able to develop more self-awareness and flourish while reaching their unrealised potential.
Curriculum Implementation - This is how we will do it.
Curriculum Impact - This is how we measure it.
