Vision for The Arts at Holy Family

Through a broad and balanced, cross curricular approach to the Arts, we aim to open up the world to our pupils and empower them to be original, imaginative, innovative and creative. We believe in capturing a passion for the Arts; offering experiences that are led by the children’s interests, to celebrate culture and diversity, and embrace new technologies. We recognise that performance is a key component to developing our children’s confidence, tenacity and ambition. At Holy Family School, celebration of creativity is of high importance.

“Art and design is not just a subject to learn, but an activity that you can practise: with your hands, your eyes, your whole personality." Quentin Blake, Illustrator and Children's Laureate.


At Holy Family we aim to teach the children in Key Stage 1, to:

a. record from first-hand observation, experience and imagination, and explore ideas
b. ask and answer questions about the starting points for their work, and develop their ideas.

We aim to teach the children in Key Stage 2, to:

a. investigate and combine visual and tactile qualities of materials and processes and to match these qualities to the purpose of the work
b. apply their experience of materials and processes, including drawing, developing their control of tools and techniques
c. use a variety of methods and approaches to communicate observations, ideas and feelings, and to design and make images and artefacts.
