As a Subject Leader, it is essential that all staff are empowered and confident in delivering a rich and ambitious Art curriculum to our pupils. To enable this, teaching and learning of pupils and staff is carefully quality assured throughout the school year. The key focus is on modelling, capturing, correcting and celebrating teaching and learning with staff and pupils.
Ensure and Assuring
During the Autumn term, a number of workshops were held for staff, focusing on curriculum and project design. Practical, bespoke staff workshops were held in year groups, which focused on enabling staff to know how to correctly model each concept and how to address likely misconceptions. This gave staff the opportunity to develop their own subject knowledge, receive instant feedback and know how to move learning forward for all pupils.
During the spring term, Art lessons are quality assured, capturing and celebrating teaching and learning. Enhancements are carefully considered ensuring learning moves forward.
Our Art and Design curriculum is quality assured to ensure our pupils receive an ambitious and rich Art curriculum. It is quality assured at a school level, a LAT level and by external agencies and experts.
Most recently, our Art curriculum has been quality assured by Plymouth University and The Connect Trust.
