At Priors Hall – A Learning Community, we aim to provide all children with a rich and varied programme of art that engages, inspires and challenges their creative minds. It will equip each student with a secure knowledge of art history and enable them to become proficient in a range of skills and techniques that will allow them to design and produce their own artwork.

Our schemes of work are guided by the national curriculum primary programmes of study. The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:
- produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
- become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
- evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
- know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms
A Priors Hall a learning, we follow a progression of technical skills and covers a range of styles, artists and genres focused on a specific art topic. Our main driver topic areas in each year group are:
- Cross curricular links –To ensure that the pupils get the benefit of a full and balanced curriculum, links are made (where appropriate) with other curriculum areas throughout the rest of the academic year.
- Art Day/ Week– An annual Art Day will be held to inspire and motivate a love of art and to immerse the pupils in a world of creativity.
- Art-based educational visits– All year groups are encouraged to either visit a gallery or arrange for gallery experiences/workshops in school.
