Art and Design

As a Rights Respecting School, we understand the need to develop children’s talents as well as ensure they have a balanced and broad curriculum. We therefore believe a high-quality arts education is essential.

All children are taught by a specialist art teacher, in dedicated art lessons once a week. They are given the opportunity to use all kinds of media and develop a wide range of skills including 2D and 3D work. We use the framework of the class curriculum to extend their knowledge and experience of art and culture both locally and internationally. 

Outside of the curriculum, we develop the children’s art skills, through hold a number of art events such as our annual Arts week and a regular Big Draw, which parents are encouraged to support and take part in. We also share the children’s art work by taking part in local and national competitions as well as community events.

There is also an art club that children can attend, and children have the opportunity to help with activities such as set design for a range of school productions, such as the Drama Club end of year show and the Year Leavers’ Production.
