West Twyford Primary School Achieving Together




At West Twyford we follow the National Curriculum for Art. Within this there are four overall aims.

  1. All children produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences.
  2. All children become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other techniques.
  3. All children evaluate and analyse creative works using the appropriate language.
  4. All children know about great artists, craft makers and designers and understand the historical and cultural development of their art.


We use a detailed skills progression document to plan and deliver art lessons. This ensures that art skills are developed systematically throughout the course of the children’s schooling. We value cross curricular teaching and art projects are usually closely linked to the current topic. This promotes creative teaching and children’s enjoyment and curiosity for learning. We also run a weekly Art Club.
