Art and Design

Art and Design is taught as a discreet subject and is aligned with our Curriculum Values.


To pilot our new Art and Design curriculum, in the Autumn term of 2022-23 all Year 1-6 classes will be developing skills and knowledge in Drawing. Our project will involve creating portraits.


Our Art and Design curriculum is based around exploring four key areas: generating ideas, creating, knowledge and evaluating. These key areas will be explored in each Art topic so that children develop an excellent understanding of them by the time they leave Leigh at the end of Year 6.


The aim for Art and Design at Leigh Primary is to enable our children to:

  • Produce creative work
  • Explore their ideas and experiences
  • Develop skills in drawing, painting, textiles, sculpture and printing
  • Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
  • Know about great artists, craft makers and designers


To find out about the knowledge and skills expectations for each year group, please see our progression document below.
