Our Art Curriculum has six core principles:
All pupils have the right to learn about and practise different art skills.
Taking the National Curriculum as its starting point, our curriculum is carefully sequenced so that powerful knowledge builds term by term and year by year. We make meaningful connections within subjects and between subjects
We ensure that foundational knowledge, skills, and concepts are secure before moving on. Pupils revisit prior learning and apply their understanding in new contexts
The core content of the curriculum is stable and as a school we will bring it to life in our own local context to inspire and meet the needs of our pupils
All pupils see themselves in our curriculum, and our curriculum takes all pupils beyond their immediate experience
Our curriculum - which includes the taught subject timetable as well as spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, our co-curricular provision and the ethos and ‘hidden curriculum’ of the school – is intended to spark curiosity and to nourish both the head and the heart
