At Oxley, we value Art and Design as an important part of the children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum. Our vision is to enable all pupils to become creative and reflective learners through opportunities to confidently develop a wide range of skills across multiple mediums. It is our aim that by the time a child leaves Oxley, they can feel as if they have found an area of the visual arts that is relevant and engaging to them – this might be through drawing, making, designing, or talking about art.
By using AccessArt, we believe that all children will develop and extend skills to express their individual interests, thoughts and ideas. As pupils progress, their understanding of how art and design has changed will enable them to improve their critical thinking and articulation, and the richness and relevance of experience will make learning memorable and impactful.
