We are strong believers in the impact of Art and Design at Poplar Farm School as part of a broad and balanced curriculum. High quality art education equips children with the skills to experiment, create and invent their own work of art whilst engaging, inspiring and challenging pupils. 

In line with National Curriculum programmes of study, children at both Key Stages and Early Years Foundation will develop knowledge, skills and understanding through a range of practical tasks which will include: 

  • Drawing 
  • Painting 
  • Print making 
  • Collage
  • Textiles
  • Sculpture
  • 3D construction, using clay 
  • Computing 

Through these, children will develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, line, shape, form texture and space. They will be encouraged to produce creative work through which they explore their own ideas and experiences. As well as learning and developing artistic skills, children will also learn about the work of other artists and how their work can be inspired by this. 

The school environment celebrates children’s achievements in art and demonstrates the subject’s high status in the school, as children’s art work will be shared through regular display within school.
