Our curriculum develops pupil's knowledge and understanding of key artists and art movements. The units link to artists through practical work and are fully scaffolded to support essential sequenced learning. Creativity and independent learning is embedded into the units by supporting children to make their own creative choices and decisions, so that their art outcomes will be knowledge-rich, unique and personal.

Our art curriculum is designed in such a way that children are involved in the evaluation, dialogue and decision-making about the quality of their outcomes and the improvements they need to make. By taking part in regular discussions and decision-making processes, children will not only know facts and key information about art, but they will be able to talk confidently about their own learning journey, have higher meta cognitive skills and have a growing understanding of how to improve.
