Art and Design


A balanced art curriculum enables the children at Lothersdale Primary School to gain knowledge of art techniques and styles which will enable them to evaluate their own and other children’s work. Art should promote diversity and be used to express the children’s personal and cultural identity.

As they move through the school, the children will be introduced to a range of famous artists from different periods of history.

Children should have the necessary knowledge and understanding to appreciate a range of art forms and artists from a wide range of cultures.

Children will develop a love of art, articulating their opinions where appropriate.

A clear progression of skills and knowledge is evident throughout the school.

They will become critical thinkers and have sufficient cultural capital to transition to year 7 and beyond successfully.
