Above is a document to show the detail of our Long Term Plan for Year B (2022-2023) and also the plan for last year, Year A, in Art across the school.

I found I could say things with colour and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.

At Tudor C of E Primary School, we aim to provide children with a high quality art and design education.  We believe that our art curriculum should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.  We value the importance of children using visual language to express emotions, interpret observations, convey insights and accentuate their individuality.  As they progress, pupils develop the ability to reflect on, analyse and critically evaluate their own work and that of others. Throughout the school, children are exposed to the works of great artists, locally and around the world. Artists studied link closely to learning in other subjects to enable children to know how art and design reflect and shape our history, contributing to the culture and creativity of our nation. 

We have identified 4 main curriculum drivers for Art and Design here at Tudor. They run throughout the whole art curriculum here at Tudor. 

They are:

1. Develop ideas

2. Mastering technique

3. Inspiration

4. Final product

We have laso identified key vocabulary for the children to learn during each unit of study which are also identified on our long term plans.


We use Chris Quigley Essentials Curriculum to plan Art and Design.  We ensure that the skills and knowledge that children will develop throughout each art topic are mapped across each year group and throughout the school to ensure progression. The emphasis on knowledge ensures that children understand the context of the artwork, as well as the artists that they are learning about and being inspired by. The curriculum exposes to children to a range of artists from around the world and from different eras. This enables links to other curriculum areas, including humanities, with children developing a considerable knowledge of individual artists as well as individual works and art movements. A similar focus on skills means that children are given opportunities to express their creative imagination, as well as practise and develop mastery in the key processes of art: drawing, painting, printing, textiles and sculpture.


Coordinated whole-school project work ensures that art is given high status in the curriculum and the school takes part in nationwide projects such as “Take One Picture” as well as local projects within the MAT, including the Diocesan Art Project.   

The school’s art curriculum is supported through the availability of a wide range of quality resources, which are used to support children’s confidence in the use of different media.

The school environment celebrates children’s achievements in art and demonstrates the subject’s high status in the school. This also reflects the children’s sense of pride in their artwork and this is demonstrated by creative outcomes across the wider curriculum.
