Curriculum Intent

At Ropery Walk Primary School, we value Art and Design as an important part of the children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum. We recognise that Art and Design should be fully inclusive to all learners. All learners are entitled to an art education that deeply connects them to their world. It creates openings and horizons for them to new ways of seeing, thinking, doing and being.

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 and enable them to generate ideas whilst 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.
