Art and Design & Technology

At Stratford St Mary Primary School, we believe through high-quality planning, teaching and assessing, the Art and Design & Technology curriculum will provide a range of opportunities (as part of our broad and balanced curriculum) which

  • Gives pupils the opportunity to produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences through engaging and exciting topics
  • Allows our pupils to create work with individuality and creativity and evaluate their own and the work of others
  • Allow pupils to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques and to evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
  • Gives pupils the opportunity to know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
