At Pleasant Street Primary School, we want our children to develop a love of art, craft and design! We want them to have no limits in their future ambitions of wanting to be illustrators, graphic designers, fashion designers, curators, architects or printmakers.

Our Art curriculum is designed to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, whilst equipping them with the knowledge and skills that will enable them to experiment, invent and create their own works of art.

We want to equip our children with not only the minimum statutory requirements of the Art and Design National Curriculum but to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. We want our children to use the local area as inspiration, to learn from other cultures and to respect diversity.
