‘Where everyone is able to achieve their best’

Art and Design Technology

At Barnby Road Academy we believe that the Arts curriculum enhances and

enriches all children’s learning.  Art and Design contributes to the development of the whole child emotionally, aesthetically, spiritually, intellectually and socially. It creates in the child a sense of enjoyment and a sense of purpose which provides pupils with a unique way of perceiving themselves and the world.


We aim to provide children with:

  • A broad and balanced range of arts activities.
  • The desire to continue an interest in the arts and develop their visual awareness and appreciation.
  • 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 develop an understanding of the work of artists, crafts people and designers and apply this knowledge to their own work.
  • The opportunity to demonstrate their skills and creativity through the arts.
  • The exposure of the technical vocabulary of the arts.
  • The varied experiences from different cultures and traditions through the arts.
  • The opportunity to achieve higher attainment in other curriculum areas through the arts, including ICT, the Humanities, Literacy and Numeracy.
  • The opportunity to raise and develop their self-esteem through class activities, performances, exhibitions and individual work.
