Benenden Church of England Primary School


We believe that creativity, challenge and inspiration are fundamental to the development of every child. 

Children develop an understanding and appreciation of key artists through time  and how they have developed high quality art through a variety of media and styles:  drawing, painting and sculpture. We provided opportunities for children to invent and create their own works of art, craft and design and time to evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design.  

Our curriculum promotes the development of progressive art skills through the National Curriculum;  these skills will underpin the lessons delivered. Where possible (but not exclusively) art will be linked with curricula themes.  

We believe that  all children have an entitlement to a range of high quality arts experiences, whatever their background and ability.  We also believe that high quality resources are essential to our art provision and we invest considerable in a wide range of art materials and equipment.  

To ensure a broad range of art materials are used and experienced, each key stage will plan their units of work using the following media:  printing, painting, drawing, textiles and clay.
