Art Progression of Skills and Curriculum

At Weston On Trent, we believe that Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. We deliver a high-quality art and design education that engages, inspires and challenges pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As our pupils work through our progressive and sequential curriculum, they become able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation through artistic study of famous artists.

Design and technology at Weston On Trent is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. 


Children acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art throughout their journey with DT. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.


Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. We strongly believe that high-quality design and technology education creates an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of our pupils.
