“Art is a place for children to learn to trust their ideas, themselves and to explore what is possible”

 Art & Design: Our Intent for the subject.

At Walter Evans, Art and Design stimulates creativity and imagination. It provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a unique way of understanding and responding to the world.

We intend to encourage our children to explore, build on and record their own creative and imaginative ideas, building confidence and enjoyment. Our children will develop curiosity and problem-solving skills that enable them to explore and test out ideas. They will have opportunities to work collaboratively, both inspiring and being inspired. They will become accustomed to looking at their own work and that of others critically and respectfully in order to improve and develop further. We intend to equip our children with the knowledge and skills required for their transition into KS3. They should understand and respect some of the ways Art and Design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

 How it fits within our school vision.

Our school vision is rooted in the Christian faith. As a proud Church of England school, our vision is underpinned by the Church of England’s vision for education. This vision identifies four interlinking aims for all our pupils and, at its heart, lies LOVE (Luke 10:27).

It is this LOVE for God, for our neighbours and ourselves, that forms our Christian foundation to underpin all that we do.

School Vision Statement

At Walter Evans we believe in a broad and balanced curriculum where all subjects are valued. A broad and balanced curriculum will equip our children with a breadth of knowledge and skills in all areas of the curriculum. We aim for our pupils to ‘Persevere, be curious and inspired through their learning’.
