At our school the arts provides opportunities for creativity, self-expression and communication, alongside the development of appreciation and evaluative skills.

The pupils are taught skills progressively and linked to the thematic teaching across the school. They are taught how to look for certain elements in works of artists and how this is used to convey ideas, feelings and meanings. Children have opportunities to experience performances and work alongside professional artists as part of their learning.     These include poets, authors, artists, dancers.   The school has very strong links with the Hippodrome theatre and year 5 usually do an Arts based piece of work.
