At Emley First School we teach all the requirements of the National Curriculum for Art, providing a broad, balanced and inclusive curriculum. We provide a creative and inspiring environment that ensures every child has the opportunity to achieve their very best. All children have full access to the Art provision as laid down in the National Curriculum regardless of age, gender or ability. We give our pupils the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to express their responses to ideas and experiences in a visual or tactile form. Although Art is a practical subject, we also provide opportunities for children to reflect and make informed, critical responses to their own work and that of others. We believe that through a deeper understanding; pupils can gain access to cultural richness and diversity.

At Emley First School our Art curriculum provides children with opportunities to develop their skills in art using a range of media and materials. Children have the opportunity to explore and evaluate different creative ideas developing skills in drawing, painting, printing, collage, textiles, 3D work and digital art. They study a range of works by famous artists to develop knowledge of styles. This is achieved through cross-curricular opportunities in the classroom, and outdoors through outdoor learning whenever appropriate. Art is displayed to motivate and inspire others and to celebrate the pupils’ artwork in their class.

At Emley First School our Art Curriculum is planned to demonstrate progression and to stimulate creativity. Pupils are clear about what the intended outcomes are and have a means to measure their own work against this, as a means of expression or to explore the styles of other artists that inspire their own work. Through our teaching of art, children are reflective and evaluate their own and each other’s work, thinking about how they can make changes to keep improving.
