At Waterside Primary School we are committed to providing all children with learning opportunities to engage in art and design.
We aim to give pupils the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to express their ideas, experiences and feelings in a visual or tactile form. While it is essentially a practical subject, art should provide opportunities for reflection and ensure pupils acquire the ability to make informed, critical responses to their own work and that of others.
Through a positive caring environment, we want to provide opportunity for every child to reach their full potential. We embrace diversity and ensure all children learn about a variety of artists and designers.
Art and Design Lead: Miss C Selman
