Hillsborough Nursery & Primary School

Believe. Belong. Become.


Children love art at Hillsborough! Our approach enthuses the children and leads to some really exciting art, craft and design opportunities. We have welcomed a range of different artists into school to demonstrate and then teach our children a range of new skills.


Art, craft and design provides a visual, tactile and sensory experience and a special way of understanding and responding to the world. 


Our curriculum aims to:


  • Instil a love of art and children’s belief in their own ability to discuss, plan and create a piece of work.
  • Develop a curiosity for the subject, as well as understanding and acceptance for all types of art. Children can appreciate how art has a value in the community they belong to and around the world, to grow their cultural capital.
  • Support children to become more confident in the different elements of art.


Our Curriculum Content Includes:


  • Creating Ideas
  • Textile and Collage
  • Drawing
  • Working with Colour
  • Printing
  • Sculpture
  • Knowledge about Artists.
