“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” – Vincent van Gogh

At St Peter and St Paul, we believe Art is a vital part of children’s life experiences and education; providing a significant and vital role in developing individuality and expression. Our Art Curriculum develops creativity, sets challenges, engages and inspires pupils and equips pupils with opportunities to experiment and invent in a safe and exciting environment.

Children are provided with opportunities to investigate, create and evaluate artwork whilst developing skills and subject knowledge. At St Peter and St Paul, our ambition is to provide all pupils with engaging opportunities to express and develop originality whilst developing key skills. Our Art curriculum will provide our pupils with opportunities that support an understanding of their own and others’ cultural heritage with interest through the study of a diverse range of artists and technical skills.

Children will be encouraged, inspired and motivated to embrace a passion for Art by providing a curriculum which enables and values the unique, creative flare of each individual. We believe Art to be an important part of a broad and balanced curriculum, providing children with many opportunities to develop and extend skills whilst enabling them to express interests, thoughts, values and ideas.

Art and design symbolises the greatest form of human creativity, therefore we feel it should be celebrated and supported explicitly for every pupil throughout our school environment.
