Fun • Creativity • Achievement



Art at Parklands aims to provide all children with the opportunity to develop their creative flare and confidence as they engage in a range of media in fun, progressively skilled lessons.

Furthermore, we aspire to give our children the opportunities to have bespoke  artistic experiences, such as working with an artist-in residence, where our  children can understand the positive impact art can have on people and the community.

How we achieve our ambitions

Our coverage ensures our children build skills across the following areas:

  • Fine Art – Drawing, Composition, Colour & Texture
  • Printing
  • Collage & Textiles
  • 3D
  • Artist Study

In order to allow staff to implement art in an engaging and purposeful manner, we focus on developing artistic skills and related knowledge within the context of a wider curriculum topic.

Each area has a progressive set of skills and knowledge to ensure that, year on year, the children’s learning builds from the previous year.

This progressive skill-based curriculum enables staff to further challenge or support children where necessary to ensure all children have personal learning journeys to encourage their best artistic outcomes.


Our Art curriculum immerses our children at Parklands within an environment that emphasises the importance of the Arts and the positive impact it can have on people and the community.

Our children’s creativity is encouraged through experiences that are beyond the norm and their outcomes are demonstrated throughout our  rich visual art environment.

“We are committed to providing the very best teaching and learning experiences, which inspire and challenge pupils to demonstrate exceptional outcomes…”
