Inspire, Enjoy, Achieve

Arts & Creativity

This domain is led by Mrs. Claire Keene.


The Arts & Creativity Domain encompasses the following traditional subjects:

  • Art & Design
  • Music
  • Drama & Performance


We believe that Arts and Creativity development is designed to prepare children for an ever-changing world in which creative thinking will bring key, life-long skills.  We aim to inspire children to think innovatively, creatively and collaboratively, to equip them with the tools required to express their ideas in a creative way.


The Arts are a powerful and unique form of communication that can change and impact the way children feel, think and act, helping them to prepare for and to participate in a rich and fulfilling life.



In art, children develop a knowledge of the styles and vocabulary used by famous artists.  They have opportunities to develop their skills by using a range of media and materials. The skills they develop and obtain are applied to cross-curricular topics, allowing children to use their art skills to reflect on and explore a variety of topics in greater depth. 



We promote a high-quality music education, which enables children to develop a love of music whilst increasing self-confidence, creativity and a sense of achievement. Our aim is to provide a high-quality music education that engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and nurtures their talent as musicians.


Drama and Performance

In Drama and Performance, we aim for our children to be able to develop oral and vocabulary skills, as well as building confidence and self-esteem. Our curriculum provides opportunities to perform to wider audiences and there are increasing opportunities for our pupils to perform as they progress through the school.
