Art and Design

“Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.DfE 2013

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. Our high-quality art and design education engages, inspires and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they are encouraged to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. We will ensure art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. It is essential that all children master art and design and make use of it in everyday life.
