At Plaistow pupils are encouraged to explore a wide range of approaches to making art and being creative, being inspired to make and create their own work that they are proud to display and discuss.
Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. Our high-quality art and design education engages, inspires and challenges pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they are able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They also learn how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity of our world community.
Our subject progressions are bespoke to Plaistow. They have been compiled with reference to national and international bodies and organisations of which our school has membership to:
