St. James' CE Primary School

Art and Design & Technology

At St James’ we have a truly Creative Curriculum, this covers all areas of the arts, crafts and design.

We aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Produce imaginative and creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques such as dance and drama
  • 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.
