Art

Intent

At The Glebe Primary School, we value Art and Design as an important part of every child’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum. We recognise the vital role of Art and Design in allowing curiosity, creativity and self–expression to develop alongside resilience, confidence and critical thinking skills.

Art and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. 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. As pupils 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 our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

The intent of our Art and Design curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the development of every child’s ability and academic achievement in the area of Art and Design; enabling them to know more about art and artists, remember more about art and the artists they learn about and understand how to use and apply this knowledge to impact upon their own art work.
