We believe that art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity.

At Calverley CE School, we will provide a  high-quality art and design education.

We ensure that this will engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.

As pupils progress, we teach children to be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design.

We develop children's skills to understand how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

Aims At Calverley CE School our aim is that art and design ensures that all pupils:

 produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences

 become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques

 evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design

 know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms
