        Art is fully embedded in Highburton CE (VC) First School and our aspiration is that every child adopts a lifelong love of the arts.  Our curriculum equips pupils with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design; engaging, inspiring and challenging them. As pupils progress, they are able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of Art and Design.   

     The children should also know how Art and Design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. Pupils capture their individual ideas and the processes of their learning within their own sketch book, which travels with them throughout their school career. This sketch book allows the children to develop and snapshot every step of their explorative learning, encapsulating their individual ideas, testing different mediums, planning, designing and developments for large scale pieces, analytical thought, new skills processes and the progression from each unit and between each year group.
