Art and Design at KAPSH

The Art and Design curriculum will provide opportunities for all children to understand and access the creative process, express themselves, develop resilience and work independently to create good outcomes. Our curriculum links to our mission statement which means that we aim children to become better versions of themselves and make the world a better place. Our Art and Design curriculum is created to give pupils every opportunity to develop their artistic ability, nurture their talent and interests, express their ideas and thoughts about the world, as well as learning about the rich heritage and culture of the British Isles and the Indian culture. Introducing the children to the work of renowned artists gives them the opportunity to experience the amazing achievements of these great works of art and enrich their cultural capital.

The intent of our Art education is to equip children with the essential skills, knowledge, vocabulary and understanding to convey their individual responses confidently and independently to ideas and experiences in a visual or tactile form. We envisage art and design to ignite children’s passion and imagination as it is a means of personal expression, providing valuable opportunities for them to reflect upon their own work and that of others with increasing sensitivity.

Design Technology at KAPSH

It is the intent of Krishna Avanti Primary School for Design Technology to be taught in all year groups through one topic per half- term. We encourage children to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.

We promote, where appropriate, the implementation of cross-curricular links with other subject areas/themes – where the children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness. Pupils are also encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers, building up their resilience to solve problems posed by and developing and building a repertoire of strategies in which to use.
