The 'Arts' is made up of Art, Music and Design and Technology.
Our art curriculum engages, inspires and challenges pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. We do this through six main areas, drawing, painting, printing, clay, 3D forms and textiles. These areas will often overlap and work together through the development of a theme.
Music engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. Music is an integral part of the Christian distinctiveness of our school and is embedded through Collective Worship as well as across curriculum opportunities. Music supports children’s self- confidence, creativity, sense of achievement and emotional well-being.
Design and Technology
In design and technology we promote creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on their daily life and the wider world.
