Our intent for Art
At Spurcroft, we offer an inclusive art curriculum that inspires children to develop a knowledge of, and love of art. We want all children to learn about great artists, designers, architects and craftspeople from history, and to use this to inspire them to create their own art.
We support all children to see themselves as artists as they develop self-belief in their knowledge and skills. They are able to form their own views and opinions on artworks, artists and artistic movements. They are given the opportunity to work independently and collaboratively on art and design projects.
We actively engage in local activities such as The Newbury Show, Thatcham schools cluster competition, and Thatcham Town Council's art projects. Through these, we make meaningful connections with others in our community.
Children’s learning progresses throughout school and builds on the learning from previous years.
