Art and Design
Art embodies some of the highest forms of human creativity allowing students the opportunity to be curious, explore their identities and develop insightful artistic opinions. Art builds a foundation for a variety of creative career paths and, as part of a balanced topic-based curriculum, should give students a wealth of skills for their futures. Hardwick and Cambourne Community Primary School is dedicated to creating an inclusive environment. As Art is a subject that everyone can access at some level, it should enable the students to feel a sense of belonging and develop a life-long passion for learning. Students should be given the opportunity to develop their skills, appreciation and critical opinions of art through the following: quality teaching based on a progression of skills, exposure to a range of artists, opportunities to experiment with a range of media and have additional opportunities to develop their passion through golden morning and arts events. All students should feel confident, valued and successful to produce creative work and become proficient in a wide range of artistic skills while analysing and critiquing both themselves and great artists.
