St Peter’s C.E Art and Design Vision




At St Peter’s C of E Primary School ‘Every Child of God Matters’.

In Art and Design, we strive to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the skills, knowledge and confidence to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.

We believe that as children progress, they start to develop the critical analysis skills to gain a deeper understanding of Art and Design, which in turn, allows them to reflect on how Art and Design have shaped our history and how it contributes to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.


A skills progression document and topic map for art shows that coverage is balanced and builds on previous learning. Children’s needs and interests are also taken into account when planning.

The curriculum is planned and sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on what has been taught before and towards its clearly defined end-points.

Pupils connect new knowledge with existing knowledge.

Good teacher knowledge is evident.

Pupils understand key concepts.

Pupils embed key concepts in their long-term memory and apply them fluently.

The work given to pupils is demanding and matches the aims of the subject

Over time pupils know more, remembering more and being able to do more

Teaching and learning is ambitious and designed to give all pupils the knowledge and skills they require

It is clear what end-points the Art curriculum is building towards and what pupils need to know and be able to do to reach those end-points.

Pupils with SEND are developing their knowledge, skills and abilities to apply what they know and can do with increasing fluency and independence



Pupils’ learning in Art is good.

The delivery of the national curriculum programmes of study.

Depth and breadth of curriculum coverage.

The content reflects the school’s ambitious intentions for learning.

Class pages and the Art website page is up to date ensuring that it is evident what is being taught.

Assessment is used to check pupils’ understanding to inform teaching and to help pupils embed and use knowledge fluently and develop their understanding.

There is a clear progression in skills from EYSF through to Year 6.
