Art and Environment

In art and design we inspire learning and understanding through an inclusive and creative curriculum, encouraging curiosity and giving our children the knowledge and skills to make the world a better place in the 21st century.

At Hartford Primary School we really value the creative curriculum.  Through topic work in the classroom, children have the opportunity to develop their Art skills in key areas such as drawing, clay, textiles, sculpture, painting, print making an collage.  These areas are developed continuously throughout the school from Early Years Foundation Stage to Year 6.

We encourage children to be inspired by great artists, local artists and engage in a wide range of media to be inventive and creative.  We develop critical thinking, making links with art to other areas of the curriculum and also the contribution it makes on culture and the world around us.

We take pride in displaying the children’s art work around the school throughout the year.
