Our Intent

At St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School we recognise the vital role of art and design in nurturing curiosity, creativity and self –expression to develop confidence and critical thinking skills. 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. Pupils will learn about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms. They will be taught to analyse and to articulate their understanding of art and design. They will reflect on how it shapes our history and contributes to the diverse culture and creativity within our school.
