Art Statement of Intent


Our intention in teaching Art is for all children:


  • to gain the appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum


  • to learn to use a wide range of media to communicate ideas and feelings


  • to develop an appreciation of a range of art genre – including artists from different historical periods and cultures


  • as they progress, to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of Art


  • to develop a positive mindset and demonstrate resilience when exploring and reviewing their own skills


  • to make observations about the world around them and express their individual ideas


  • to learn about the role of art, craft and design in their environment and take inspiration from it
