Creative Arts

Art & Design

At Almondsbury School, in line with the National Curriculum, our art, craft and design embodies some of the highest forms of human creativity. Our high-quality art and design education aims to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. 

Children learn about how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation, our school and our community.

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.

Art & design is taught through the medium of topic and covers the fundamental skills of drawing and painting, printing and collage, textiles and 3D.



In line with the National Curriculum, we believe music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. Our high-quality music education is delivered by a music specialist and aims to engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. 

The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils: 

§ perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians 

§ learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to play musical instruments, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence 

§ understand and explore how music is created, through the following elements: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations. This page is currently awaiting content
