Art & DT
At Rustington CP School, the aim of the art and design curriculum is to engage, inspire and nurture pupils to confidently express their individual creativity within a diverse range of art, craft and design . Of equal importance is teaching children how being creative can be so beneficial for their sense of well-being. This is taught within an environment where art is accessible to all, collaborative art is encouraged and every child can make meaningful progress.
At Rustington CP School, Design and Technology is a subject designed to open the door on the outside world. We want our children to develop a curiosity and an enquiring mind about how things work, how they are built and their ultimate purpose. Our curriculum allows opportunities for children to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.
Our design briefs allow children to have the opportunity to take risks safely and try things out. We want children to be able to choose appropriate materials for a set task, have the necessary skills to use tools effectively and adopt a trial and improvement mindset to develop an effective product.
