Art and Design

At Harris Primary Academy Purley Way, we are committed to providing all children with the learning opportunities to engage in art and design. We believe in a broad and balanced curriculum.  The quality of art and design is seen as a key contributor to the provision of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural values of our academy.

We believe that visual arts enable children to become visually literate and allow children of this academy to imagine and express themselves artistically and creatively. We believe it is important to equip children with the knowledge, experience and skills to create pieces of art that is both inspiring and engaging. Art and design can signpost career pathway to creative, cultural and heritage industries as well as a creative subject. Visual arts form a part of creative industries that are expected to continue to expand. We want every child to have these opportunities and to become more inquisitive about the world and their environment. We want them to see and use their imagination and understanding and express visually how arts have shaped our history, how it is currently viewed and how it will shape their future.
