Creative Arts (Developing positive Mental Health and Wellbeing)



Through our art curriculum at Fishponds, we intend to achieve the following things.

  • Provide our children with the opportunity to develop their skills in drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, textiles and printing through each phase of the school.
  • Provide the opportunity to explore the work of other artists and be able to evaluate pieces of art.
  • Develop creative thinking within our students and provide them with the opportunity to explore and develop their own creative ideas.


  • Art is taught through creative arts days
  • A skills progression is used to develop art skills progressively across the school
  • EYFS provide daily art based activities through continuous provision
  • Whole school creative arts days develop outcomes
