St James’s Catholic Primary School ‘Put out into the deep’



‘Logic will take you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere’ Einstein


Through Art, at St James’s we aim to:

  • Enable children to record from first-hand experience and from imagination, and to select their own ideas to use in their work.

  • Develop creativity and imagination through a range of practical activities.

  • Improve the children’s ability to control materials, tools and techniques.

  • Increase their critical awareness of the roles and purposes of art, historically and in different cultures.

  • Develop confidenceand independence in the use of a variety of media and resources.

  • Foster an enjoyment and appreciation of the visual arts and a knowledge of artists, craftspeople and designers.

During the year we all enjoy a focused Art Week; each year group focuses on a particular work of art for that week and uses it as a starting point for creative activities, in various areas of the curriculum. We celebrate the children’s art work through an annual exhibition, where all the school can view and appreciate some of the work done.
