At Higher Failsworth Primary School we believe that a high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. It enables children of all abilities to use their creative imagination to achieve their full potential with guidance and given criteria. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the cultural creativity and wealth of our nation. Art is not taught in isolation, although it retains its creative base and its skills and techniques. Wherever appropriate, art is linked to other areas of the curriculum and gives children the opportunities to further develop specific art skills as well as reinforcing skills already established.


At Higher Failsworth Primary School we aim to offer opportunities for children to:

  • Become creative and imaginative learners;
  • Develop skills that are transferable to other aspects of the curriculum and their lives;
  • Explore future opportunities and aspirations related to Art and Design;
  • Appreciate a variety of art and express opinions, whilst developing their evaluation and analytical talents.
