Intent - What do we intend our children to learn through art?
It is our intent to ensure children at Repton Primary School have a rich understanding of the different aspects of art (such as line, tone, texture, colour and pattern), and ensure that this is developed throughout their school career. Our high-quality Art curriculum will inspire and challenge the children and equip them with the skills and knowledge to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. At the very heart of our Art curriculum are our key school values, Respect, Pride and Success. Through learning about the roles and purposes of art, the children will explore the impact art has had on contemporary life and that of different times and cultures. The curriculum is designed so that skills from the National Curriculum are progressive and built upon as children move through school.
