Our curriculum at Archdeacon Cambridge’s CE Primary School provides the children with opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills to explore, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. The curriculum units, based on the skills progression developed by school staff, provide an exciting context for children to develop their artistic skills and knowledge of great artists. As the children move through the school, they are supported to build on these skills within Art and Design lessons. Their development is also supported by opportunities to participate in extra-curricular clubs, visits to art galleries and to work alongside visiting artists. Every year children have opportunities to participate in local Art competitions such as the Fourth Plinth School’s Award or the Richmond in Bloom Poster Competition.


The skills the children will develop as they move through the school are outlined in our Art Skills Progression below.
