Statement of Intent:


At Christ Church, we aim to provide an Art and Design curriculum that

pupils from Reception to year 6 not only enjoy but also acquire a range of

skills and techniques whilst using a variety of materials.

Our art and design curriculum will engage, inspire and challenge pupils,

equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create

their own works of art, craft and design.

We value Art and Design as an important part of the children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum. It is our vision that Art and Design provides the children with the opportunities to develop and extend skills whilst expressing their individual interests, thought and ideas.  We want our pupils to become critical thinkers and to develop a rigorous understanding of art and design. Our aim is for children to master a wide range of techniques when using different materials. As they progress through the scheme, we will also provide pupils with the opportunity to critically evaluate and analyse artwork, form opinions and encourage them to use artistic language in discussions.

It is our aim at Christ Church Primary School to develop and encourage children to:

  • produce creative work drawing on their own experiences and ideas.

  • become proficient in drawing, painting and sculpture.

  • master the use of a range of tools and materials.

  • critically evaluate and analyse creative work using key Art and Design language.

  • know about a range of great artist, craft makers and designers, showing a good understanding of the historical and cultural development of their art form.
