At Tottington Primary we believe by delivering high quality, engaging and challenging art lessons, we will inspire our children to gain the knowledge and skills they need to experiment, and create their own works of art, craft and design and progress successfully through the curriculum.


Creativity is a key factor in preparing our children to face the future with imagination, innovation, and to develop confidence in other subjects and life skills. Making art and design enjoyable and motivating will help develop positive attitudes in school and life beyond school, and provide the foundations for career pathways emerging from art and design; encouraging aspiring artists, designers, architects, and craft makers of the future.

By studying the work of great artists, architects and designers from the past and present children will know how art and design reflects our history, have a greater understanding of different lives, and also have respect for cultures that are different from their own.
