We recognise that Art and Design stimulates creativity and imagination. It provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a special way of understanding and responding to the world. It enables children of all abilities to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes.

At Rowledge C of E Primary, we encourage children to explore ideas and meanings through the work of a range of artists and designers. Through learning about the roles and functions of art, they can explore the impact it has had on contemporary life and that of different times and cultures. The appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts enriches all our lives.

The curriculum champions for Art is Mrs Jennifer Hodgson-Hutton.  To find out more about how Rowledge delivers this subject please contact her using the following email addresses: j.hodgsonhutton@rowledge.hants.sch.uk

Our overview for the planning and delivery of Art at Rowledge is led by the statutory, National Curriculum guidance and the relevant programmes of study for each yeargroup.

School Curriculum

Please find an overview of our whole school art curriculum below.


We have aligned a progression of skills and knowledge with the programmes of study for each year group. 

The documents below outline this progression and is used when assessing the ongoing progress of pupils.


We regularly conference pupils to gain an awareness of their attitudes to a range of curriculum subjects.  Below is a sample of thoughts from a range of pupils about how they feel about the Science curriculum at Rowledge.


"I like art a lot.  I love sticking different textures together to make a picture.

Recently, we used paint and collage to make a Great Fire of London picture.  Mine was great!"


"I love art.  It is really fun to be so creative.  Last year I got so good at mixing different colours and shades and using them in my work.

Recently, we made an pastille picture of our summer and then used collaging techniques to enhance it!"


"It is so creative.  We get to use different materials for different effects.  We have used watercolours, oil pastilles, paint, sketching pencils and even skittles when making art recently!"


Below are our Year Group overviews which provide a sense of the curriculum experience children will recieve in each year group.  We recognise that each cohort are individuals and promote flexibility in themes to meet the required subject objectives.  You can see the range of concepts taught across the school by reviewing these documents.
