‘The Arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing and arithmetic…music,dance,painting and theatre are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishments. At Sacred Heart Catholic Primary Academy, the Creative Arts encompass a range of subjects, including performance across art,music,dance and drama. We believe that a cohesive Creative Arts Policy will help to identify and meet key objectives which run through all these subjects.
The environment in school stimulates creativity and innovation to enable our children to unleash their imagination. We know that by developing skills in creative and performing arts we develop a child’s individuality and self confidence.
Art & Design
A high quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge 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 should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design.
They should also know how art and design reflect and shape our history and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
Music is the universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity
A high quality . music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians and so increase their self confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.
As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose and listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.
