Art and Design


Art and Design Policy

In art, pupils will learn about some of the most significant pieces of art that have been created and the artists that created them. They will also learn how to produce their own pieces of art in a range of different forms.  We place great emphasis on teaching pupils to draw with a structured drawing programme in KS2 that builds up children's skills over time. We ensure pupils have lots of chance to practice the basics so that they are able to use their knowledge to create their own pieces of art at the end of a unit of study.


We have recently started using Kapow for our scheme of work in Art and Design.


As we are a Catholic school, it is important that we aim to develop our children’s Cultural Capital and Religious Literacy by each class studying a piece of religious art. This includes works of art from Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael and Rembrandt.
