East Acton Primary School "Growing Together"


Our curriculum allows children to respond and express themselves creatively to different forms of Art.  It equips them with the skills, knowledge, and vocabulary to experiment, invent and create their own works of Art.

Our curriculum reflects and celebrates our school’s diversity. Our children are exposed to a wide variety of artists, designers, architects and craftspeople, including females and those from British as well as Black and other ethnic backgrounds. Children learn about great artists, their work, influence and impact.  The curriculum promotes British values such as tolerance and respect for different people’s ideas as children learn about different cultures and movements within Art.

Our intent is that year on year, the children will be able to explain how each unit is linked together and what they have learnt from previous years. They will learn about great artists, craft makers and designers and understand the historical and cultural development of their Art form. The study of great artists is developed over time through our curriculum and children gain a deeper knowledge and appreciation for a wide range of global, British and local artists.
