Statement of Intent - Art and Design

At Fulwood and Cadley we aim to provide art, craft and design teaching that engages, inspires and challenges pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Teaching and learning encourages pupils to discover how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

In key stage 1, we aim to ensure pupils use a range of materials creatively to design and make products and to use e.g. drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination.  We encourage pupils to develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space and know about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work.

In key stage 2, we aim to ensure pupils develop and deeply embed their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design.

We encourage pupils to work in sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas. Our intention is for our pupils to improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including e.g. drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials [for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay] Our pupils will also learn about great artists, architects and designers in history.

Above all else, at Fulwood and Cadley we aim for our pupils to enjoy art and design and feel confident in expressing themselves through a variety of media. We want their love and enjoyment of the subject to be shown through any artistic endeavour, whether in an art and craft lesson or through any other subject.
