Art & Design

During each academic year, our planning ensures that the children have opportunities to engage in a variety of art forms.

We state which elements and mediums of art are being taught and applied and its inspiration.  We ensure that a range of elements and mediums are used through the year.  The subject leader will ensure a range of elements and mediums through the school by monitoring planning and outcomes.  Our long term plans also specify where artists, designers and architects are studied.
