RATIONALE

Art, craft 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 aim is to provide each pupil at St John’s Primary School with the opportunity to develop their artistic skills, visual perception, confidence and enjoyment of art;
  • The teaching of Art is a legal requirement and is within the framework of the National Curriculum;
  • This policy is in line with the overall Curriculum aims;
  • The school will provide an enriching personal experience creating an artistic outlet for individual expression, enabling children to communicate creatively and practically.
 AIMS 
The national 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
 INTENDED OUTCOMES 
By the end of Key Stage 1 pupils should be helped to:
  • to use a range of materials creatively to design and make products
