Art and Design

At English Martyrs we follow the Primary National Curriculum for Art and Design.

The national curriculum states that : Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent 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. 

We encourage parents to come into school to view the high quality pieces of art work researched, produced and displayed by the pupils eg whole school art day Friday 29th November.
