Our approach to the Art & Design curriculum is through thematic/topic based approach underpinned by the HCAT accelerated learning approach to teaching and learning.
The key concepts, principles and themes have been developed from the National Curriculum into a range of progressive knowledge and skills through which the pupils are helped to grow and develop to succeed in 21st century Britain and ensure children learn and remember more. Our progressive document is split into 4 sections and shows the progression from transition to KS2, these are: drawing, painting, collage and 3D. This knowledge and skills based curriculum allows a creative way of teaching and learning, enabling us to move away from discrete lessons into a more meaningful, engaging, topic based approach.
The Art and Design curriculum we offer is designed to meet the needs of all our pupils. It is rich, varied, imaginative and ambitious and meets the needs of individual learners and can easily be adapted for pupils with additional needs.
