Statement of Intent:

At Harrietsham Church of England Primary School, we aim to foster a lifelong love and appreciation of the Arts for all our children, by exposing them to high quality Art and Design experiences across the curriculum.  

We believe that art is a way for children to communicate their ideas, feelings and responses, and knowledge of the work of a range of artists, contributes to their cultural understanding.

Our art lessons present the children with opportunities to develop their creativity, provide challenge and engage and inspire. Through discussion, enquiry and working as part of a team, they are taught the skills to use a range of materials and techniques competently. They are encouraged to evaluate their own work and that of other artists, so they can understand the value and significance of art in society both in the present day and the past. With this knowledge, they can experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design, and then break as many of those rules as they like. 


Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.
