“Art has the role in education of helping children to become like themselves, instead of more like everyone else.”
Sydney Gurewitz Clemens
Vision and INtent
We are Mrs Pickles and Mrs Castle and together we lead Art. We are working together to ensure that the teaching and learning of Art in our school aligns to the national curriculum and equips children with a sound knowledge of the formal elements as well as key artists and movements. Most importantly though, we aim to inspire pupils to develop their confidence, to experiment and to invent their own works of art. We are extremely excited to see the impact of our new art scheme in the classroom and to share the children’s masterpieces with you.
At Cheadle Primary, we use the Kapow scheme of Art which supports pupils to meet the national curriculum end of key stage attainment targets and has been written to fully cover the National Society for Education in Art and Design’s progression competencies.
Core Knowledge and skills
Please click on the links below to see our subject progression documents for art.
Children will be provided with a sketchbook when they join the school, and this will go with them as they move throughout the school. Sketchbooks are an essential record of an individual child's experiences and ideas throughout a year and key stage and will be seen as evidence for assessment and reporting purposes.
cultural capital and enrichment
Cultural capital is the accumulation of knowledge, behaviours, and skills that a child can draw upon and which demonstrates their cultural awareness, knowledge and competence; it is one of the key ingredients a pupil will draw upon to be successful in society, their career and the world of work.
