Art Intent Statement

At The John Moore Primary School we believe in fostering an open ended exploration of creativity to allow all children to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. By providing the children with the key skills, materials and ideas in a safe and nurturing environment, we aim to develop creativity.


Art is a subject that encourages experimentation, promotes the use of imagination and helps children to gain the confidence to try things out. We encourage our children to persevere when overcoming challenges, to show determination and self-belief and to never give up. Our children are taught to refine their work and develop resilience, understanding that there is not one right way of doing something. We view all pupils as unique individuals and welcome and love their differences. As pupils progress we encourage and teach them to think more critically as well as begin to understand how art is reflected in history.  


Our Art curriculum follows a comprehensive scheme of work that provides a clear progression of skills across all key stages within the strands of Art. The curriculum builds in fundamental subject knowledge, skills and understanding. It encourages our children to explore, investigate, create and evaluate artwork as set out in the National Curriculum. We work to ensure that all children reach and exceed their potential at The John Moore Primary School.


We enable pupils to create art work with a real purpose, sharing and displaying the work they create and showcasing the skills and progress made at all opportunities. We want to celebrate their successes.
