Our Vision for Art:

  • To provide children with opportunities to express themselves in emotional terms through their art experiences, to study and record both man-made and natural phenomena.
  • To develop the children’s knowledge of materials by allowing them to experiment freely and to encourage them to use materials sensibly and safely.
  • To ensure the children learn a range of pertinent skills so that they develop an expertise in using both materials and equipment and so enable the realisation of their ideas.
  • To develop an understanding of the work of artists, crafts people, architects and designers and apply this knowledge to their own work.
  • To provide opportunities for studying historical, cultural and religious art.


Shaping Our Art: 

The teaching and implementation of the Art and Design Curriculum at Chorlton CE Primary School is based on the National Curriculum. We provide a rich and varied art learning environment allowing children to develop their skills and abilities to their full potential encompassing a range the art forms and skills.  Often lessons are delivered in a cross-curricular approach and where possible enriched by workshops and trips to local galleries.  As well as weekly lessons, throughout the year children create collaborative art pieces for displays during Arts Weeks and Super Learning Days.

Every child from Year 1 to 6 has a sketchbook, these are used when creating, learning and developing new ideas. Children are encouraged to present their work in any way they choose.


Our Art curriculum is also drawn from: 

At Chorlton CE we have build strong links with Manchester Art Gallery who support us in delivering our curriculum.
