At Norwich Road Academy, we believe that Art, Craft and Design embody the opportunity for the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality Art and Design curriculum should engage, inspire and challenge children whilst equipping them with knowledge and skills that enable them to invent, experiment and create their own works of Art.
As children progress through their educational journey, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of skills and application through the content and scope delivered through the Core Knowledge Curriculum. They should also know how Art and Design has impacted and shaped our cultural history.
Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject that encourages children to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems, both as individuals and as members of a team.
At Norwich Road Academy, we encourage children to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. We also aim to make links to designs and designers throughout history, providing opportunities for children to critically reflect upon and evaluate their designs.
We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. This gives the learning purpose and relevance to the children.
