Art and Design

Our Vision and Aims

At Nansledan our Art and Design curriculum has been created to ensure all children are inspired, challenged and equipped with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. We believe Art should provide pupils with a real-life context for learning. We aim to inspire pupils to develop their confidence to experiment and invent their own works of art. Our scheme is designed to give pupils every opportunity to develop their ability, nurture their talent and interests, express their ideas and thoughts about the world, as well as learning about art and artists across cultures and through history. Our  Art and Design curriculum is built around essential knowledge, understanding and key skills.  These are broken into year group expectations and show clear continuity and progress.

Our progression of skills and knowledge shows the skills that are taught within each year group and how these skills develop to ensure that attainment targets are securely met but the end of each key stage. It also shows how knowledge builds in the formal elements of Art. Creativity and independent outcomes are robustly embedded into our units, supporting students in leaning ow to make their own creative choices and decisions, so that their art outcomes, whilst still being knowledge-rich, are unique to the pupils. Lessons are always practical in nature and encourage experimental and exploratory learning with pupils using sketchbooks to document their ideas.

Our Art Curriculum

Our Art and Design scheme of work support pupils to meet the National Curriculum end of key stage attainment targets and has been written to fully cover the National Society for Education.

In  accordance with the National Curriculum’s expectations, we aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • 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.
