At Tottington Primary School we are passionate about promoting high standards of Art and Design. Through combining the Early Years and National Curriculum with our TPS core values, our ambitious art curriculum equips all our children with the necessary skills and knowledge.


By the end of their time at Tottington Primary School, our children will have  improved their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials (for example, pencil, charcoal, paint and clay) and will be confident in sharing their ideas, experiences and imagination. They will be able to talk about the work of great artists, architects and designers in history, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and make links to their own work. Our children will have learnt that concentration and persistence will enables them to create art in similar styles to great artists and have learned problem-solving skills when trying out new styles.


Through our well-planned, and sequenced Art and Design curriculum our children acquire the vital knowledge and skills required for the next stage of their learning journey and on into adulthood. This will enable the children of Tottington Primary School to become successful, active and positive members of their local community and the wider world.
