Therfield First School

“Bringing Learning to Life”



Art Intent Statement:


At Therfield First School we value art and design as an integral part of the children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum. Art and Design provides our children with opportunities to develop and extend their skills, and express their individual interests, thoughts and ideas. Pupils are encouraged to evaluate work within a safe and supportive environment.


Pupils will learn how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design.
