Art & Design


At Langmoor Primary school we strive to ensure children are provided with opportunities to stimulate creativity and imagination. We want our children to love art, craft and design and our Art and Design curriculum has been developed to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, whilst equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to experiment, invent and create their own works of art.  We ensure children are provided with ample opportunities to develop skills using a wide range of media and techniques. Children are provided with the chance to use a range of materials creativity to design and make products, develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space.


The Art and Design curriculum at Langmoor has been developed to stimulate creativity and imagination and enable all pupils to develop skills in using a wide range of media and techniques. Each art topic covers the requirements of the National Curriculum to ensure that pupils:

  • Explore and record ideas for creating their own 2D and 3D work
  • Develop skills and confidence in drawing, painting, 3D work and other art, craft and design techniques
  • Evaluate and analyse creative works using artistic terms
  • Know about great artists, craft makers and designers from different times and cultures.
  • Whenever possible we provide opportunities for pupils to take part in special art projects such as The Big Draw. We are very proud of our pupils’ artwork and celebrate their achievements by displaying work in the ‘Gallery’ and throughout the school.

At Langmoor, Art and Design Technology is taught in all year groups; Art and Design Technology are block taught per half term. Cross-curricular links are promoted to allow all children to deepen their understanding across the curriculum, including the use of Computing and artworks from specific historical, geographical and scientific contexts. Teachers follow a clear progression of skills which ensures all pupils are challenged in line with their year group expectations and are also given the opportunity to build on their prior knowledge and skills.



The structure of the Art and Design Technology curriculum ensures that children are able to develop their knowledge and understanding of the work of artists, designers and craftspeople from a range of different time periods and cultures and apply this to their own work. Classroom displays reflect the children’s sense of pride in their work and this is also demonstrated by creative outcomes across the wider curriculum. The school environment also celebrates children’s achievements in Art and Design Technology through links to Forest School where children are offered regular opportunities to enhance their creativity in an outdoor environment.
