Ingoldmells Academy

Art & Design

We aim for our pupils to be given the following opportunities to develop their understanding, creativity and enjoyment of Art.

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

We have access to Kapow to support non-specialists in delivering sessions that are well sequenced, progressive and high quality. More confident staff have the flexibility to adapt sessions to enable them to fully utilise their skills.   We aim to follow a spiral curriculum with the following key principles;

Cyclical: Pupils return to the same skills again and again

Increasing depth: Each time a skill is revisited it is covered with greater complexity

Prior knowledge: Upon returning to a skill, prior knowledge is utilised so pupils can build upon previous foundations, rather than starting again.
