At Hunnyhill Primary School, we value Art and Design as an important part of the children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum. Our Art and Design curriculum provides the children with the opportunities to develop and extend skills and an opportunity to express their individual interests, thought and ideas.
A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Art contributes to children’s a sense of belonging and ownership by providing opportunities for children to showcase work to others. It should create a positive and inclusive experience where children are not afraid to make mistakes. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically about their own work, and the work of other artists to develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. Art planning should incorporate progression of skills and stimulate personal progression. It should be used as a platform for personal expression and the development of individuality. Authentic opportunities should be incorporated, offering real world challenges and examples, such as artist visits. Children should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to our culture.
