Art INTENT

At Thurcroft Infant school we intend for our art curriculum to inspire, create and celebrate achievements though art.  We intend to raise aspiration raise aspiration and open children’s eyes to the world beyond their immediate environment, enabling them to lead happy, healthy, productive lives and inspiring children to be ambitious in their learning and inclusive in their views.

Our art curriculum encourages children to concentrate, persevere, be creative, explore, collaborate with other and be proud of their achievements.  We will foster a love for creativity, individuality and being imaginative and inquisitive which we believe feeds into creative writing and a greater understanding of the world around them.
