Our Christian Vision for Art:




Every child’s journey will follow their own unique path with guidance from the teachings of God, our school values, and SKATS.  They will develop their love of learning through a variety of art mediums whilst adopting new skills and furthering their knowledge allowing them to prosper and give hope for their future.  Through research, practise, creativity, and evaluation, each child will gain confidence in their own achievements.They will look at artwork from a range of countries and cultures; learning from and enjoying  the talents of others to inspire future generations.  Embracing a creative and spiritual curriculum within a safe and loving Christian family. 


Snapshot of Art

Art is taught in every year at St. James and follows the national curriculum. We use Kapow to deliver our art curriculum. Skills and knowledge are intertwined with topics covered throughout the year alongside learning about famous and important artists, architects and designers.

The children will be given the opportunity to learn and develop art skills using a range of media including material, watercolours and clay.  They will have the chance to explore their own creativity and evaluate both their own work and others.


Arts Award Discover is the start of the Arts Award adventure. It takes children and young people on an artistic journey as they explore the arts all around them, investigate different art forms, research an artist, and then share their discoveries with others. Our Arts Award advisor is Mrs Hudson.
