Bledington Primary School Art and Design
At Bledington Primary School we want our pupils to love art, craft and design! Our curriculum is designed to engage, inspire and challenge pupils whilst equipping them with the knowledge and skills to be able to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. We want to stimulate creativity and imagination providing visual, tactile and sensory experiences. As pupils progress, they should be able to appreciate how art and design both reflect and shape our history, contributing to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
We aim to ensure that all pupils:
The teaching and implementation of our Art and Design curriculum is based on the National Curriculum and linked to topics to ensure a well-structured approach. Art is taught weekly in every class and is enhanced by whole school Art workshops, led by local artists, at least three times a year. We also provide a weekly after school Art club, sponsored by Kingham Lodge, which is run by an established local artist. Further opportunities for Art experiences are embraced – recently we have taken part in an art competition held by our Community Shop and exhibited a “Recycled Blossoms” installation at Kingham Lodge during Oxfordshire Artweeks.

By the end of their time with us, we want pupils to have learnt, improved and embedded a range of artistic and design skills. On-going assessments take place throughout the year and teachers use these to inform future lessons; ensuring children are supported and also challenged. EYFS pupils are assessed within Expressive Arts and Design and their progress is tracked using Evidence Me. We want all pupils to be confident to explore, experiment and take risks, placing value on the process and journey that they take, not just on the finished product. Most importantly, we want Bledington pupils to have had and enjoyed a creative outlet- a means of self-expression and enjoyment.
