Southfield Junior School

  • "This is a good school. Southfield is calm and orderly, but has a 'buzz' of activity. Leaders have set out clear and high expectations. Teachers have the secure knowledge of the curriculum to be able to challenge pupils." - Ofsted 2019

Art at Southfield

At Southfield Junior School, we are exceptionally fortunate to be able to provide all children and classes with weekly bespoke art lesson delivered by Mrs Wild, who remains a practising artist outside her hours at Southfield.  Mrs Wild plans, resources and delivers the lessons so that the children cover all the required Programmes of Study for Key Stage 2.

Mrs White regularly liaises with Mrs Wild to ensure that there is high-quality art provision across the school, including use of a range of media techniques, different styles from history, as well as studying famous artists, architects and designers that are linked to the year groups theme for that term.

Vision for Art

At Southfield, we believe that Art is a practical, hands on, experimental experience for children. They are provided with opportunities to explore a range of varied and appropriate resources with the guidance of staff.  Children are inspired to use their imaginations, to visualise their creation and express their individuality through their work.  They are also encouraged to reflect on their art recording and develop their ideas in their portfolios.
