Art and Design




The aim of our Art and Design curriculum is to:

  • Give children a wide range of artistic opportunities through which they can explore and develop skills
  • Help children learn to express themselves creatively
  • Give children opportunities to find out about cultural heritage by learning about well-known artists, architects and craftspeople.


How Art and Design links with our school values:



Be Kind - We learn to positively critique the works of ourselves and others, knowing that responses can be varied and valid.





Be Respectful - We learn about Art from other countries and cultures.





Be Passionate about Learning - We challenge ourselves to use a range of media, working to high standards to produce fantastic work.





Make a DifferenceWe develop our skills to grow holistically, letting our lights shine in all areas.



At St Vincent’s we aspire to make the learning ambitious for all learners. Our school curriculum includes the knowledge, skills and life experiences children need to thrive. Our learning is carefully planned and sequenced using the National Curriculum that can be found below: 

National Curriculum Art and Design

Knowledge and skills are built on from previous years and there is clear progression in each subject. You can see an overview of progression below:

Each curriculum area is taught across the year and evidenced on a long term plan, divided into half termly blocks. You can see the long term plan below:
