At Westlea Primary School we highly value Art and Design as it gives all children opportunities to use their creativity and imagination. It helps children achieve their potential and feel a sense of accomplishment and enjoyment within the process of art, as well as with the finished product. Children work individually and within a group to develop their artistic, social and personal skills. Art gives children opportunities to develop and enhance specific skills, whether this is taught as part of a cross-curricular session or a stand-alone art session.
A high-quality art and design education intends to engage and inspire children, equipping them with the knowledge, skills and confidence to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. They should also know how art and design features in, and shapes and reflects, our history.
