Art and Design Intent


At St Cuthbert’s C of E Primary School, we believe that Art & Design contributes to the development of each child emotionally, aesthetically, spiritually, intellectually and socially, creating a sense of enjoyment and purpose. We believe that a well-planned, vibrant curriculum inspires children to ‘be the best artists we are able to be.’


Art, craft 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.


We aim to ensure that all children will:

· produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences

· become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques

· evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design

· know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
