At Jennett’s Park Primary School we believe that art, craft and design exemplifies some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design educations allows children to be engaged, inspired and challenged, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. This subject allows children to take their experiences of the world and transform them while making connections and relationships through their inventive minds. There is an emphasis on analysing the historical development of art through teaching about great artists and designers. At Jennett’s Park provides children with the opportunity to reflect and shape their own history and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
At is taught in EYFS, Key Stage 1 and 2 by teachers. We are lucky enough to employ a specialist artist who helps support our Arts vision during PPA cover. With the new curriculum’s stronger emphasis on the teaching of drawing using a range of media from an early age, Jennett’s Park’s focus for art, craft and design is to foster and prosper a rich experience for children during art lesson; focusing on the techniques of sketching and drawing with a gradual level of depth throughout their years at the school.
