Art and DT at St Augustine's


Curriculum Intent

Arts, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity.  A high quality Art and Design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils. The purpose of Art and Design education is to give pupils the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to express their responses to ideas and experiences in a visual or tactile form.  It fires their imagination and is a fundamental means of personal expression.  Purposeful Art and Design creates an awareness of how both reflect and shape our history and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nations. 


Design and Technology prepares children to take part in the development of our rapidly changing world. Creative thinking encourages children to make positive changes to their quality of life. The subject encourages children to become autonomous and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond by developing ideas and eventually making products and systems.
