At Beeford CE (VC) Primary School and North Frodingham Primary School we believe that Art, craft and design should engage and inspire pupils and challenge them to invent and create their own work. As pupils progress they should become critical of their work and that of other significant artists. The subject should provide an opportunity for pupils to understand the contribution art makes to our world and the significance it has in our history.
We believe that our children are entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum full of creative opportunities. Our art curriculum is closely matched to our vision where there are ‘Opportunities for all to achieve their full potential through creativity and challenge’.
Our art curriculum is accessible to all and gives children opportunities to learn new skills and develop these further through a range of media and materials.
In line with the national curriculum 2014, the curriculum at Beeford C of E (VC) Primary School and North Frodingham Primary School aims to ensure that all pupils:
• Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences.
• Become proficient at 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.
