Whinfield Primary School have developed a curriculum which is ambitious and designed to give all pupils the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.
In Art, the whole school curriculum has been designed very carefully in conjunction with all staff to ensure that the knowledge and skills are taught in a sequential order which will ensure pupils know more and remember more.
In Art we follow the objectives set out in the national curriculum. As a school, we follow the Plan Bee scheme of learning. This scheme offers all children the skills and knowledge needed to ensure every child at Whinfield can be the best artist they can be. Staff adapt and tweak lessons when needed to link with other areas of the curriculum or to meet the needs of the children. Pupil and staff voice is also taken into consideration and the curriculum is adapted accordingly to accommodate their changing needs. Art is celebrated in school throughout displays in the classrooms and corridors. We promote a positive ethos across the school which instils “Every child is an artist” at Whinfield.
A whole school overview is attached to this page detailing our curriculum in Art.
