Proud to be part of

Art and design

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. At All Saints Junior School, we value art and design as an important part of a broad and balanced curriculum.

We have chosen to use the Kapow curriculum during the Spring and Summer terms to form the core basis of our Art curriculum, whilst supplementing this in the Autumn term with two inspiring units of work: the first, to participate in The Big Draw festival and the second, to create seasonal crafts with a focus on sustainability. All these units aim to inspire every child to develop their confidence to experiment and invent their own works of art.

The Kapow scheme is written by experts in their field and designed to give every child the opportunity to develop their ability, nurture their talent and interests, express their ideas and thoughts about the world, as well as learning about art and artists across cultures and throughout history.

Our supplementary units in the Autumn term aim to give children the opportunity to create art for purpose, with built-in opportunities to display artwork for families; they also aim to provide children with cherished creations that they can keep as reminders of their time with us at All Saints.

The Kapow scheme supports pupils to meet the National Curriculum end of key stage attainment targets and has been written to fully cover the National Society of Education in Art and Design’s progression competencies.
