Lakenham Primary and Nursery School


The intent of our Art curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they are able to:

  • Discover Art as a form of self-expression.
  • Become more skilled in all areas of art, craft and design as they progress through each year group.
  • Create their own art work, exploring ideas and recording experiences.
  • Understand Art as a distinct subject (to ensure rigorous teaching of skills) as well as having many cross curricular links.
  • Understand how Art has shaped our history and culture.
  • Become familiar with the work of several historically famous and present day artists from a variety of backgrounds to reflect the diversity of our school.
  • Be able to analyse and evaluate the work of artists and realise its wider impact on the world.
