St Peter's Catholic Primary School

Art & Design

At St Peter's, our intention is to provide an Art Curriculum which allows children to explore their imagination, generate ideas, acquire skills, apply judgements and be inspired by the work of different artists. We follow the National Curriculum for Art.

The programmes of study for Key Stage One and Two can be found here.

Our Art Curriculum is strongly linked with class topics and throughout the curriculum children will be given opportunities:

  • To develop knowledge, understanding and skills.
  • To learn about materials and techniques used by artists.
  • To learn about the world of art, craft and design.
  • To recognise achievement of artists, designers and craftspeople, from many different times and cultures.

We aim to raise the standards of the pupils’ abilities in specific art and craft skills such as:

  • Cutting
  • Joining
  • Drawing
  • Evaluating
  • Use of sketchbooks within KS2

We aim to increase the opportunities for the children to experience:

  • Art from different cultures
  • Using different materials and techniques
  • Art within our community
