Art and Design

Through our Art curriculum, we aim to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they develop lifelong skills and knowledge.

Art is one of the highest forms of human creativity. We believe that our Art curriculum encourages our pupils to express their creativity and develop a natural sense of curiosity about the world around them.

Art also contributes to children’s personal development in creativity, independence and aspiration, covering and encouraging the basic skills and attitudes across the curriculum.

Aims and Intent

At Carnagill, we aim for a high-quality Art curriculum which engages and inspires children. Our Art curriculum provides children with opportunities to develop and extend their knowledge and skills and to be able to express their individual interests, thoughts and ideas.

Our curriculum is skills-based and over time, children will develop their knowledge and skills within a range of medias, such as drawing, painting, printing, collage, textiles and sculpture, and they will be given the opportunity to explore and evaluate different creative ideas. Children will be introduced to a range of artists and designers, past and present, and develop a knowledge of a range of styles.

Please see our Art policyfor more details.

The Subject Leader for Art is Vicky McNichol.

We are pleased to be open to all children.

Please remember children should not attend school if they are presenting symptoms of COVID-19.
