At SMJPS we believe that Art and Design Technology are an essential part of the primary curriculum. Our children are taught the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to express responses to ideas and experiences.
Art and Design Technology at SMJPS is taught as an individual subject by a specialist art teacher who is able to invest quality time into each topic ensuring that the skills and techniques the children learn are developed and mastered as they move up the school.
Our integrated curriculum allows the children to develop their skills in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques whilst at the same time exploring and evaluating the works of great artists, craft makes and designers of both the past and present.
We are committed to providing all children with equal learning opportunities to engage in Art and Design Technology ensuring that lessons are inclusive and take into account pupils’ needs whilst celebrating individual expression.
Progression in Art and Design Technology is assessed through the children’s sketch books, displays and photographic evidence as well as continuous pupil voice assessment which gives the children the opportunity to voice their opinions and reinforces their subject knowledge.
