Long Row Primary and Nursery School

Inspire, Respect, Belong


At Long Row Primary and Nursery School, Art and Design is taught throughout school following the objectives in the National Curriculum 2014 and the Early Learning Goals from the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile 2016 Handbook. These are covered over a 2-year cycle that is progressive and builds upon prior learning.  To support our planning, we use ‘Development Matters’ in EYFS and  Access Art Scheme.

In EYFS, pupils have the opportunity to explore Art and Design on a daily basis through play, continuous provision and enhancements that develop and teach specific skills and techniques.

Each term, we complete an Art and Design 'topic' which takes place during an Art focus week. Links are made with other curriculum areas when appropriate.

Our Art and Design curriculum is accessible to all pupils, including those pupils with SEND. The curriculum may be adapted, scaffolded or modified to ensure that these children have opportunity to achieve in the subject.
