Which curriculum does St Paul’s follow for art?
At St Paul’s, we follow the National Curriculum for art.
The National Curriculum for art and design aims to ensure 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

Our ‘diversity in art’ document shows some of the artists of different ethnicity, age, race, ability and gender that the children will study while at St Paul’s School.
My child has been very excited about an upcoming ‘Art Day’. Can you tell me more?
The staff are equally as excited about our half-termly Art Days! Each half term we choose one of six areas of learning (drawing, colour, texture, form, printing or pattern) and link it to an artist. The children spend the whole day planning, making, evaluating and modifying their art.
Take a look through our photos to see some of the amazing art the children have produced!
