Primary School

Art and Design

At Kenton Bar Primary School, we place great emphasis on the importance of Art and Design within our curriculum. Art, craft and design contributes to our well-being and to our social, emotional and cultural development.




In our Early Years Foundation Stage, we aim to:


  • Develop imagination and creativity in our children
  • Develop the ability to use media and materials.


In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, children study the National Curriculum for Art and Design and we aim to:


  • Engage, inspire and challenge pupil
  • Equip pupils with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design
  • Encourage children to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design
  • Teach children know how art and design reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture and wealth of our nation.



Our whole school art and design project to celebrate 100 years since the end of World War 1 using a wide range of materials and techniques.
