Art and Design

The purpose of art and design at Reid Street is to encourage some of the highest forms of pupil creativity through the receipt of high quality art and design education and to inspire pupils to develop their own interests in the enjoyment of art, craft and design. We aim to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.

Art and Design reflects cultural values, beliefs and helps children to identify the many different communities that make up our world.

Art is in embedded our daily learning and it is full of opportunities to help children with the development of language skills, social skills, decision making, risk taking and inventions. Art and design also ensures the enhancement of fine and gross motor skills.
