St Saviour's Church Schools


At St Saviour's Infants Art is a very valued subject and we encourage children to be creative as much as possible. We have a wide range of resources and each class has a selection of materials and tools for children to practise the skills they have learnt in their own Discovery sessions.


We teach Art and Design to stimulate creativity and imagination. Art provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a special way of understanding and responding to the world. It enables children of all abilities to use their creativity and imagination and is accessible to all.


Children can communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form and pattern. They explore ideas and meanings through the work of local and famous artists and designers.


Art is taught in isolation and wherever appropriate it is linked to other areas of the curriculum. Our progression of skills and knowledge allows the children to learn specific techniques as well as developing and extending existing skills.


In Art we want our children to:

  • be creative and express themselves through all art forms.
  • enjoy themselves and be successful.
  • have an enriched curriculum through activities that encompass all areas of the curriculum, different cultures and those that reflect our local community.
  • develop a respect for others’ artistic tastes, talents and points of view.
  • learn about different genres of Art through the appreciation of the work of other artists and crafts people from different times and cultures.
  • develop their ability to observe, investigate, respond to and record events.
  • develop their visual language and the ability to express their ideas and feelings in order to evaluate their own work and that of others.
