Art & D.T Curriculum Overview


The curriculum at St Peter’s aims to inspire children to learn, celebrating the rich diversity across St Peter’s school, church and wider local community. Our curriculum places every child at the centre of learning. We endeavour to nurture our children’s individuality, supporting their development of interpersonal skills and resilience to become creative, critical thinkers.

St Peter’s curriculum works in parallel with the national curriculum and aims to educate children on how best to reach their potential by providing different skills and opportunities.

We pride ourselves on having a curriculum that gives a voice to all pupils which enables them to build important life skills, knowledge and cultural capital required for successful life opportunities.


We pride ourselves on offering a spiral curriculum that helps to shape pupil learning and provide long-lasting skills and development. We use holidays, events and celebrations to help support our children’s art development within school as well as weekly Art and D.T lessons. The school also works with artist, Mrs McCourt and provides opportunity for each Year group to create an Art project with her across the year, helping them to gain further experience. St Peter’s also offers pupils extra-curricular art clubs for both KS1 and KS2 helping to develop skills outside of the classroom. Our children are receptive to learning and have great potential and this will be encouraged by all adults within the school. Children will find the curriculum to be accessible and meaningful within Art & D.T, allowing them to express themselves freely. Our teachers will always attempt to use local learning opportunities within walking distance from the school (museums and galleries) to provide meaningful enrichment opportunities for the children


Children at St Peter’s will develop detailed knowledge and skills across the whole curriculum taught and given regular opportunities to articulate their learning through opportunities for retrieval practice; to showcase that their fluency and mastery is incrementally improving. They will demonstrate a love of learning through pride in all that they do with the ability to persevere when challenges arise. The quality and breadth of work seen in books and learning environments will showcase their learning over time.

Service, hope, love, forgiveness, faith and wisdom will be integral to their values and relationships.
