The curriculum is designed to provide learning opportunities which, paired with quality first teaching; inspire children to acquire knowledge, as an artist; and provides rich opportunities which enable them to skilfully attempt and apply their developing understanding of these concepts. 

Our vision is that every child should be taught an appropriately wide range of skills and knowledge in Art and Design, which reflects the depth and breadth at the heart of our curriculum. We do this by ensuring that children have both depth in their understanding of different art skills, as well as breadth in their understanding of how to apply these, across a variety of mediums. Art and Design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. We aim to provide high-quality Art and Design lessons that engage, inspire and challenge children, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft, and design.

As children progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape elements of our history, and contribute to, the culture, creativity, and richness of expression locally, nationally and globally.
