Art & Design Technology

We value the progress and fulfilment of our pupils across the arts curriculum: art, design and technology (DT), dance and music. Children express themselves through the arts and explore learning in a dynamic way. They are encouraged to make mistakes, persevere and not give up. In turn, this creates independent learners, that thrive in later years.

Topic work opens opportunities for learning the arts through a range of subjects, whilst still building on progressive skills. Children learn about famous artists in each class and create work influenced by them. They use the wider world to inspire their creations and aim high for what they can achieve. In the arts, the possibilities are endless and being individually creative is always encouraged.
