Art and Design

Statement of Intent

At Clifton Hamden CE Primary School the teaching of Art aims to equip children with opportunities to investigate, experiment, express and communicate their ideas in order to develop the necessary skills and knowledge. Children explore through a variety of mediums in a safe environment where they can take risks and be original.  Creative Arts at Clifton Hampden CE Primary School is a celebration, embracing contemporary, classic and cultural influences which will broaden the children’s horizons for their life outside the classroom.



The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design
  • evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
  • know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and
    cultural development of their art forms
