KS3 Art

Curriculum Overview

In Art, we acknowledge and celebrate our distinctive place in the curriculum, providing pupils with a creative outlet to express themselves. We are proud to be a practical subject and emphasise the development and mastery of practical skills in our lessons and curriculum. 

At Key Stage 3, we begin by teaching fundamental skills in mark making, colour theory, and Art History to give all pupils the opportunity to respond to topics and themes in a personal manner. These fundamental skills are the bedrock of our curriculum and are designed to best prepare pupils for future Artistic endeavours.

How will I be assessed?

Students will be assessed using St Bernadette grade 1-6 criteria (please see the Key Learning Steps document for more information).

In Term 1 of Year 7, pupils will undergo a baseline test to assess current Artistic ability.

Projects will be assessed on an ongoing basis against St Bernadette grade 1-6 criteria. Projects are assessed on a continual basis with terminal assessment once a project is finished.
