At St Anne’s we believe that capturing the children’s passion for Art and Design is important as it can bring out a child’s individuality, expressiveness and imagination. It can also have a positive impact on their learning in other areas of the curriculum too. Therefore we aim to provide all children with high quality arts provision and experiences in and out of school. This subject stimulates creativity, imagination and inventiveness so we aim to give all of our pupils the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to express responses to ideas and experiences. Through the children’s own exploration of art and design they are also able to develop their appreciation for the art of other people and cultures, and the confidence to express their own thoughts and feelings through their work.
