At Upton Heath CE Primary School our teaching of Art and Design is informed by the Pathways to Write long term curriculum plan, which is directly linked to the national curriculum as well as other Art projects/days/weeks that link to other areas of the curriculum, our school vision and special events. Art contributes to children’s personal development through creativity, independence, judgement and self-reflection. The curriculum at UHPS is carefully planned and structured to encapsulate our curriculum intent of REACH (Relevant, Engaging, Aspirational, Creative and Holistic).
We teach a skills-based art curriculum, which gives opportunities for children to express their creative imagination as well as practise and develop mastery in the key processes of art: drawing, painting, printing, textiles and sculpture, all whilst studying a range of noted contemporary and classical artists. We ensure that current learning is linked to previous learning as part of a sequential curriculum, enabling children to achieve the end of year expectations.
