Curriculum Lead - Mr Crouch


We aim 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.


  • Our whole school curriculum leads pupils through a progression of skills and knowledge which are built upon in each class.
  • In the Foundation Stage, children work within the EYFS for Expressive Arts and Design as set out in the Curriculum Guidance for Foundation Stage.
  • In Key Stages 1 and 2, work is planned with regard to the National Curriculum guidelines within the cross-curricular topics for each class.  These can be found on the long-term plans for each Key Stage. 


  • Children develop a love of art and a keen interest in different types of art work and famous artists.
  • They are reflective/ critical about their work and the work of famous artists. 
  • They build on skills that they practise in their sketch books.
