We believe that art and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should 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. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
Our curriculum is based upon the National Curriculum 2014. It aims to ensure that all pupils:
Our art curriculum is enriched by a variety of special activities. Year groups create art galleries of children’s work in particular units of study and parents are invited to enjoy the work. Each term the children have the opportunity to display their artwork more widely in a Seer Green community event.
Each half-term has a key curriculum focus, into which many other subjects and lessons link, providing continuity and context for learning from the very earliest years in school. Our curriculum is enriched in all year groups by visits and visitors to school, and each half-termly unit culminates in a ‘Rich Learning Outcome’ – a highlight and celebration of learning, in which parents are often invited to share.
