Stanton Bridge Primary School



At Stanton Bridge, our intent is to develop pupil’s creativeness and confidence in expressing themselves. Through their experience of the art curriculum, they will become expressive individuals.


Our pupils will develop their artistic skills and techniques, including observational skills, texture, sculpting whilst experimenting with a range of media, to enhance their knowledge and understanding of these different techniques accomplished by incorporating exciting, diverse topics/activities within our Medium Term Plans throughout the year groups.


Pupils are introduced to and will learn about famous artists, designers and sculptors who have influenced our lives, the art world and our surroundings. They have the opportunity to visit these iconic places, bringing art to life. They are made aware of the history of art and can critically analyse how art has changed or influenced artists over time. We explore iconic artists and their styles of work to support pupils in developing their self-reflective skills and confidence. From this process of exposure, pupils will show confidence in experimenting with different styles of art, to achieve a good understanding of media/ art forms and to accept cultures and art itself.

Post-Lockdown Wellbeing Project

When returning to school after lockdown, Stanton Bridge Primary School took part in an amazing art-led wellbeing project to help us all settle back into school after such an unexpected event.  Adults and children alike worked incredibly hard online when learning remotely or when in school with key worker children. To ensure that we were all able to process what we had been through, Mrs Mahmood planned a 6-week programme of Philosophy 4 Children, Art and Design Technology learning linked to the curriculum we had missed.
