Art and Design at The Avenue

At The Avenue Primary School, we value Art and Design as an important part of our children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum. Art and Design provides the children with the opportunities to develop and extend their skills and gives them each the opportunity to express their individual interests, thoughts and ideas. We believe art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge our pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
