Art and DT

The Arts, Design and Technology


There is great emphasis on Art and DT in our school as we strongly believe it is an integral part of every child’s development. Art and DT motivates children to be creative and provides them with the benefits of self-esteem and cultural exposure.

These elements play a crucial role in the holistic development of our children so that they develop a positive attitude to both learning and life.

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.
