Purbrook Junior School

Art and Design

Art and Design plays an important part in the learning that takes place at Purbrook Junior School.

​Art and Design is all around us and in every single part of the world we live in. From architecture to book illustrations, clothing to sculptures – Art is everywhere. It represents some of the highest forms of human creativity.

At Purbrook Junior School, we have a high-quality art and design education which engages, inspires and challenges pupils, giving them the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

Our aims, in line with the National Curriculum, will ensure that all pupils:

  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • become skilful in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
  • evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
  • know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms

Our current Art and Design leader is: Mrs C Gray
