At our school, we celebrate artistic development and aim to equipped children with the skills to develop as young artists. We are determined that our children can produce creative work through exploring their ideas and recording their experiences. Children will become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other craft and design techniques. We will analyse and evaluate our creative work using the language of art, craft and design. Children will be exposed to great artists, craft makers and designers and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
We follow the 2014 National Curriculum and our expectation is that all children are showing progress in line with national expectations. It is the responsibility of each class teacher to monitor and ensure that this progress is made. The subject leader works with each teacher to monitor this progress and to ensure that sufficient challenge is given to each child.

Teachers measure the impact of the curriculum through formative and summative assessment. From this assessment teachers will adapt and change their planning according to the needs of all of the children. Subject leaders will also measure the impact of the curriculum through learning walks, pupil voice and teacher surveys. Individual pupil data, in accordance with objectives within the National Curriculum, is collected and analysed three times a year. This data is recorded on the school’s electronic data base (INSIGHT) to monitor attainment and progress.
