Art and Design

At New Oscott, we believe that every child is an artist and designer and encourage our children to demonstrate their own creativity. We provide exciting and stimulating differentiated lessons that are inclusive and actively teach knowledge, skills and discovery through theoretical and practical elements.

Our learning is structured and supported by the Art and Design National Curriculum Programme of Study, is progressive and supports the learning of other subjects and areas of learning in each Year Group. We use quality resources that inspire creativity through a range of different media to develop resilient learners that reflect on their work to enable progression. This expands the children’s understanding of the world that they live in and gives them the tools to be able to think as artists, developing their Art and Design Capital and understanding of how Art is used and can influence us in everyday life; developing transferable life skills.

Art and Design in Early Years Foundation Stage is taught through the EYFS Framework’s Expressive Arts and Design Early Learning Goals.
