Art & Design

We believe that Art is a valuable vehicle for children to explore the world and their place within it. The children in our school experience a variety of media in order to explore their ideas, thoughts and feelings. The access to those experiences will take into account differing learning styles and will be an integral part of the curriculum for each child. Children learn to recognise and appreciate the work of others. They will be helped to search beyond their own time and culture, both within the school and outside it.

The environment of the school aims to be stimulating and interesting and enable the children to enjoy art in all its forms. We recognise that time needs to be made available to the children to benefit from a planned and coherent programme which will address conceptual, formal, critical, cultural, technological and historical elements of art and design.
