Art and design provide strong and purposeful links across all curriculum subjects and within the themes being explored in the classroom. Children experiment with, and then learn to master a wide range of media and tools. The children learn about artists, craft workers and designers and to respond thoughtfully and imaginatively to ideas, images and objects of many kinds and from many cultures. (For more information on Art in the curriculum, please see our school prospectus.)
We also offer the children the opportunity to express their artistic talents and interests at extra curricular Art clubs, which run after school.
West End School takes part in this big community project in July. We exhibited works of art that had been completed over the previous year in locations around the town. The window displays look fabulous and we had lots of positive feedback
