Sudley Art and Design Curriculum Intent

At Sudley Primary School, we believe that Art is a vital and integral part of children’s education. It provides them with opportunities to share and express their individual creativity and imagination, whilst learning about and making links with a wide spectrum of different types of art in our society. Art contributes to children’s personal development in independence, resilience and self-reflection; moreover, it enables pupils to develop a natural sense of wonder and curiosity about the world around them. Our Art curriculum develops children’s critical abilities and understanding of their own and others’ cultural heritages through studying a diverse range of male and female artists and designers throughout history. They will develop understanding of the language of art with effective teaching and carefully thought-out sequences of lessons and experiences, providing an accessible, engaging and always practical curriculum, which will enable children to reach their full potential.


We aim to ensure that all pupils

  • have the opportunity to record from first hand experience and from imagination
  • have opportunities to select their own ideas for use in their work
  • develop their creativity and imagination through increasingly challenging activities
  • develop confidence in their ability to control materials, tools and techniques
  • become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
  • increase their critical awareness of the roles and purpose of Art and Design in different times and cultures
  • enjoy and be inspired by the work of great artists, craftspeople and designers
  • develop a love for Art and Design
