Art & Design

In our Art and Design teaching, we set out to stimulate children’s creativity and imagination. 

Our tried-and-tested Art and Design pathway enables pupils to record what they see and feel first-hand, and then to develop their creativity through a range of visual, tactile and sensory experiences.

The children’s ability to control tools and materials improves over time because the carefully sequenced learning builds systematically through the key stages. And, all the while, they are developing an awareness of the role and purpose of art and design, and of the people practising it in different times and cultures.

Quality lessons, engaging content, class collaboration, easy assessments

Digitised Lessons - end to end curriculum delivery support 

To access the thousands of digitised lessons we use a system called Miro.  Miro is a content-sharing platform that lets teachers make, edit, share and distribute lessons to pupils!


Curriculum maps bring the learning journey to life

What am I learning? How does it relate to what I learnt last year and to what I'm going to learn next year? Our learning pathways graphically set out the whole subject curriculum and bring the learning journey to life for every learner, in each year.


Assessment sheets for every lesson

For every lesson in every subject, the Lion Pathways Curriculum provides end-of-topic or end-of-module assessment sheets; we use these to capture both pupil and teacher feedback for that piece of work. By actively tracking each learner’s views in a consistent and systematic way, it ensures their voice is heard and recorded, a core part of every element of the teaching and learning cycle.
