Catholic Primary School

Art and Design



At More Park our Art intent is to engage, inspire and challenge each student with the help of God. We value Art as part of a broad and balanced curriculum. Building on key artistic skills, such as drawing, painting and other craft mediums ensures children will create, evaluate, invent and experiment with their own works of art. Each lesson encourages children to produce art to the best of their ability, drawing on taught skills and encouraging individuality as well as thinking creatively. We will explore great artists and craft makers to learn about the history and culture that influences our lives in order to engage, inspire and challenge pupils equipping them with knowledge and skills to develop an understanding of art. Where relevant, art studies will link with other curriculum units to highlight its connections to the wider world to prepare them for future life.




Art units cover three terms of the academic year and are taught weekly during those periods. Areas covered include drawing, sculpture and painting . Children will also study famous artists throughout history enabling children to enhance their learning and understanding of Art.


Early years Framework


Through Expressive Arts and Design, children develop artistic and cultural awareness to develop and support their imagination and creativity using a wide range of media and materials sharing their creations and explaining the process they have used.


The national curriculum for Art aims to ensure that all pupils:


  •  Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences

  •  Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques

  •  Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design

  •  Know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.




Art work can be seen in sketch books and topic books but also through the corridors and classrooms enhancing the learning environment in every class, hall and corridor.


Assessment takes place at the end of each Art topic. Assessment is based on one of three areas:


  • Artist inspired piece

  • Exploring materials

  • 3D project


These pieces are then used to create individual sketchbooks which are taken throughout the child’s primary school life to show development of skills and to emphasis their individuality and creativity.



What do the children think about Art at More Park?


  • "Art is important because it means using your imagination, it is an escape from the world."
  • "There is a sense of being free and only concentrating on just that art piece."
  • "It is always different."
  • "Art allows me to express my feelings."
  • "You are learning in a fun way."
