Intent statement for art and design:


At Laburnum Primary school the art and design curriculum develops creativity, skills and provides the chance to explore different techniques using a variety of media. The children are given opportunities to investigate artists, crafts people and designers through links in their class topics. 

We follow the National Curriculum which allows pupils to develop, create, reflect and evaluate their art work in all year groups.

The National Curriculum aims are:

  • Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences

  •  Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques

  •  Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design

  •  Know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
