Stanley St Peter’s Art vision 2020-2021

 

 

At Stanley St Peter’s our main aim is to ‘Unlock Potential and Celebrate Success’. Art provides the key to unlock such potential by facilitating self-expression and creativity contributing to an increase in confidence and a sense of individual identity. Art is inclusive, communicative and enables children to take their own experiences and project these into different forms. Alongside being inclusive and communicative, art encompasses many key skills across all age groups including pencil control, manipulating materials towards an overall goal and researching both contemporary and historical art and artists. These skills are transferable across other subjects and should be valued, encouraged and celebrated.   

 

What does Art look like in our school?

Teachers take an active interest in children’s artistic ideas, suggestions and outcome pieces. Work is regularly celebrated through the use of displays and sharing with others in class and across school. Opportunities for artistic expression are provided alongside the teaching of keys skills and links within the current topic. Children’s voice is valued and adhered to where possible, planning follows a given structure however opportunity to enhance an area of learning is taken.
