Creative - Art
All pupils will learn skills that enhance their fine motor and sensory skills, communication abilities, language, focus, independence, self-expression and self-confidence. Pupils will experiment and try new ideas where there are no right or wrong answers. Pupils will develop their knowledge and understanding of Art and its’ processes as well as developing an awareness and experience of different cultures and traditions through Art. Pupils will experience, explore and use a range of media and materials.
Art is delivered through Expressive Arts and Design in EYFS, delivered as a non-core subject (Creative Curriculum) from KS1 through to KS4 and as a part of the Health, wellbeing and relationships area of study within Post 16 where Asdan accreditation will be delivered where relevant. Long term planning is driven by key skills which are taken from the Art progression steps at KS1-4.
Art allows all pupils to access fundamental abilities such as: achievement, self-confidence, interaction with and awareness of others and self-reflection. As well as developing their critical thinking and fine motor skills which can enhance performance in non-arts academic subjects such as mathematics, science, reading and writing.
Pupils will develop their pre-requisite skills through the National Curriculum subject areas; including Art. L2L pupils will encounter and build upon their artistic experiences and awareness through explorative and sensory opportunities, whilst focusing on personalised learning outcomes that are woven taken from the engagement areas of Cognition & Learning; Communication & Interaction, Sensory & Physical and SEMH.
