Art will be taught as part of a progressive knowledge-rich curriculum with transferable skills that deepen and ensure enduring understanding, enabling children to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art and craft techniques.

The language and vocabulary of art, craft and design will be taught explicitly ensuring that it is transferable and enables children to criticise, analyse and evaluate creative works of art.

The art curriculum will provide children with meaningful and quality learning experiences through a well sequenced and cohesive curriculum built on prior learning.

Children will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to become autonomous and expressive learners through experimenting, inventing and creating their own works of art, craft and design.

Long Term Planning
We teach our art in topics. Art topics usually last for half a term but can sometimes be taught over a term.

An overview of our School Curriculum can be found on the Curriculum page of our website. Please look for our Long Term Planning document. Below is the information contained within our Long Term Planning document about our Art Curriculum.

Knowledge Organisers
For each Art topic taught, we have Knowledge Organisers. These provide specific details of the content of each Art topic. The organisers give details of the facts and information the children need to know and understand, in the order they will be taught, together with any specific vocabulary. These are shared with the children and are referred to throughout topics. To view any of our Knowledge Organisers, please click on the links below.

Learning Overviews
Each half term teachers produce Learning Overviews. These give details of everything being taught in a half-term. These Learning Overviews are published on our Class Pages of this website.

Please note, due to our rolling programme of Learning Themes, not every Foundation Subject is taught every half-term. However, be the end of each academic year, all the necessary content will have been covered by each year group.
