At Holy Trinity Primary School, We are passionate about developing and promoting Art and Design through an enjoyable, creative and cross curricular approach. We are committed to providing all children with the opportunities to engage and succeed in Art and Design, regardless of background, language and or special needs through high quality, differentiated teaching. We encourage children to share and explore both their own and new diverse cultural experiences in the arts. As well as focussed high quality teaching of the National Curriculum Programs of Study in classes, we enrich our children’s learning and experiences of Art and Design through after school club opportunities and the use of external agencies. Alongside encouraging creativity we aim for children to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding or Art and Design. At Holy Trinity Primary School, we aim to ensure that all our children thrive, succeed and achieve their potential.
At Holy Trinity we endeavour to cover the National Curriculum aims by:
- producing creative work, exploring ideas and recording experiences
- becoming proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
- evaluating and analysing creative works using the language of art, craft and design
- knowing about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms
