Teaching and learning in Art will encourage pupils to:

· Critically evaluate their own art work.

· Improve work after evaluation.

· Reflection and re-cap of knowledge and skills remembered and understood.


All pupils over time, develop a range of skills and techniques across all of the areas of the National Curriculum for Art.


Completed Art work provides evidence of:

· Pupils having had a wide range of opportunities for practice and refinement of skills.
