Art and Design

Here at St. Johns, we encourage children to explore their creative talents in everything they do; through regular links with the local community and artists, in class and school, art and sesign projects and competitions. Pupils are given the opportunity to work with traditional and new media, to engage with and explore visual, tangible and additional sensory practices and learn ways in which to convey their own ideas and meanings.

We believe it to be very important that all children have the opportunity to develop their skills in all areas of the curriculum, with Art and Design Technology being a great way to promote individuality, curiosity, confidence and imagination. Where possible we encourage the teaching of cross curricular Art and Design Technology to make learning exciting and stimulating.
