"Learning and Achieving in a Caring Community"

Art and Design

“You can't use up creativity, the more you use, the more you have.”

Maya Angelou

At Stansfield Hall, our Art and Design Curriculum is designed to take our children on a journey to develop their creative skills using a variety of mediums. We have designed our curriculum to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, whilst teaching them the knowledge and skills to be able to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. 

We have used “KAPOW” as a starting point for our Art and Design Curriculum, and we have carefully selected our units to ensure that they not only ignite a love of Art and Design in our learners, but that our curriculum also meets full coverage of the National Curriculum and Art and Design Program of Study. 

At Stansfield Hall, we break our learning down into phases- Explorers, Discoverers and Pioneers – and each of these phases has set milestones we expect our children to achieve. 

Our children have the opportunity to develop their creative skills through continued opportunities for art expression, being exposed to different art forms and being encouraged to question what they see in the world. 

In EYFS, Art is developed through continuous provision and in the Early Years Framework under Physical Development and Expressive Art and Design.  

We aim for our children to become independent, accomplished artists and art critics, finding their own style and use this as a starting point for their own creative outcomes. Our art curriculum gives them the opportunities to be inspired by artists such as Louis Wain, Ed Ruscha and Claude Monet; the foundations of exploring ways in which art can be produced; and the creativity to develop their own unique style.
