Art and Design

At Harleston Sancroft Academy, we believe that learning within art, craft and design stimulates creativity and imagination. It provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a special way of understanding and responding to the world.  Our intent is to offer a knowledge-rich, vocabulary-driven and skills based Art and design curriculum which gives the children opportunities to develop as artists and ‘Live life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10). 

Through our values – hope, perseverance, wisdom, love, respect and faith – we aim to provide our pupils within the early years and primary phases with an art and design curriculum which enables them to:

  • Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques.
  • Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences.
  • Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design.
  • Know about a variety of great artists, craft makers and designers and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.

I feel valued as a member of staff. I like the fact the school has a clear vision, a vision that I feel a part of.
