Art and Design
Engaging, inspiring and challenging pupils through art
Our art and design curriculum aims to 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 are taught to be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They begin to show an understanding of how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation and those around the world.
Being situated near Manchester City Centre we are fortunate to have a wealth of museums and galleries on our doorstep. We incorporate visits to galleries into our planning, and also have close links with local artists to ensure that our children have valuable first hand experiences to aid their learning and understanding of art and design.
