Art; Inclusion and Impact


All children receive Quality First Teaching. Any children with identified SEND or in receipt of pupil premium funding may have work additional to and different from their peers in order to access the curriculum dependent upon their needs. In addition, our school offers a vibrant, demanding and varied curriculum, providing all our pupils with a range of opportunities in order for them to reach their full potential, enjoy and achieve regardless of their starting points.






Within Art, we strive to prepare pupil’s to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. We aim to encourage children to become creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team.

Our art and design curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. We focus on progression of knowledge and skills and discreet vocabulary progression also form part of the units of work.

We measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods:

  • Assessing pupil’s understanding of topic linked vocabulary before and after the unit is taught.
  • Engaging with pupil discussions about their learning.
  • Images and videos of the pupil’s practical learning.
  • Interviewing the pupils about their learning (pupil voice).
  • Display
  • Artefacts
  • Pupil’s responses, thoughts and ideas in sketchbooks.

Using the above summative assessment methods, a judgment is recorded on classroom monitor, which is our assessment tool in order to track progress and skills in art across the school.
