Art & Design


National Curriculum Guidance

“Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should 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 should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.”

In Art and Design, we aim for the impact to be:

  • Children leave St Oswald’s having experienced developing skills in all the major areas of Art and Design as stated in the National Curriculum. Our curriculum balances in these different areas.
  • Children’s art is celebrated in the classroom and through projects in the community.
  • Children enjoy art, and feel like the subject allows everyone to succeed.
  • Children can talk about famous artists and designers, understanding some of the impact these artists have had.

  • Long Term Plan
