Art and Design Statement of Intent

‘You are the light of the world’

At St Anne’s CE Primary School, we aim to meet the needs of all pupils in creating a curriculum that encourages children to become resilient learners of art and design which embodies some of the highest forms of human creativity.

Our core values, particularly Respect, Courage and Commitment, will be used to encourage children to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. The curriculum is designed to progressively develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of our ever-changing diverse world to encourage them to think critically and develop a more rigours understanding of art and design.

They will also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

By the end of Key Stage 2, and in preparation for Key Stages 3 and 4, our curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
  • Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
  • Know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.

We aim to nurture the children’s natural curiosity and love of learning.
