Art

Our Vision

It is our vision at Cheriton Primary School, to encourage a school community where all children participate, succeed and are proud of their achievements. We believe the arts have the power to inspire, inform, stimulate, challenge and entertain. We understand that engagement in the arts fosters children’s ability to formulate and communicate ideas and feelings, enhancing their skills of responding to stimuli, developing ideas and evaluating processes and outcomes. Participation in art gives children the opportunity to improve fine and gross motor skills.

We envisage a school where art is a part of a well-rounded curriculum. We aim to provide a range of integrated experiences, carefully planned to fit into topics, which give a dynamic focus for our pupils’ enjoyment and consequently encourages better outcomes for all.

We see a school where involvement in the arts helps to foster positive attitudes and develop a wide range of qualities in our pupils such as co-operation, enthusiasm, passion, imagination, tenacity and ambition.
