Art is led by Mrs Ravilious.


At Heronshaw School all children have access a high-quality range of art experiences. We provide imaginative, innovative and exciting art which are linked to our half termly projects. Our lessons foster enjoyment, and enthusiasm for different artists, crafts people and designers and they are also linked to the wider multicultural community. The children's art experiences are broad, rich, contemporary and diverse. By keeping our understanding of all discipline areas (drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture etc) as open as possible we ensure that we keep art as inclusive and accessible to every child. 

Children are inspired to develop their understanding and enjoyment of art, craft and design through a wide range of activities that include drawing, printing, painting, collage, sewing, clay work and weaving. They will grow in knowledge and skill and will be confident using artistic vocabulary when talking about their work.  

Throughout the year art projects will challenge the children to apply art skills that they have learnt when creating pieces of work in the style of other artists.  

All of this will give the children the opportunities to express themselves and achieve on the own way, using this new knowledge and skill.


Below you will find links to key documents. 

The progression grid shows the key knowledge and skills that are taught from Foundation Stage to the end of Key Stage 1. Our progression grids also highlight the next steps in the educational journey, therefore include Year 3 expectations.

How do I know what my child is being taught at Heronshaw?

We deliver curriculum information meetings for parents. Presentation slideshows are saved under the Year Group drop down menus.

In addition to this, each year group produces an Overview of Learning that is also saved under Year Groups.

Every subject under the Curriculum tab has detailed Progression Grids which show the full curriculum that Heronshaw has designed for our pupils.
