At Tyntesfield, we aim to provide an art and design curriculum which engages, inspires and challenges our pupils as well as develops their knowledge and skills.
At KS1 children are taught to use a range of materials effectively and creatively and to use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop their ideas.
At KS2, children are taught to develop their techniques, including their control and use of materials. In addition, children develop an understanding of the work of artists from different times and cultures, and make connections to their own work. We aim to develop enthusiasm and interest in a subject that enriches all areas of the curriculum and help children make thoughtful judgements and become actively involved in shaping their environment.
Pupils very much enjoy coming to school... They feel safe in the stimulating environment into which they are warmly welcomed... One pupil stated that, ‘You can be yourself here.’
