Art and Design  Curriculum Intent


At Coppull Parish C of E Primary School, we ensure children can access an art curriculum which provides them with the opportunities to develop and extend skills, promoting curiosity and allowing children to be courageous within their design process. Our curriculum intends to inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Children at Coppull Parish C of E Primary School will also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. Children will become creative learners, who have a web of knowledge about the great artists of the world. At our school, there is an emphasis placed on individuality and children will be given the freedom to explore art using their imaginations. 


Underpinned by the following Coppull Parish curriculum drivers:

Developing Speech and language: 

As budding artists, creators and designers, we encourage our pupils to discuss and evaluate using rich vocabulary to express opinions, likes and dislikes within all areas of the Art Curriculum.


Our Art curriculum envelopes a range of diverse artists around the world in which the children research and base their art work upon.

Mental Health and Wellbeing:

We promote individuality and creativity as well as giving opportunities for children to express themselves emotionally through the medium of art and design.


Design and Technology Curriculum Intent


Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject, which, at Coppull Parish C of E Primary School, we aim to teach through a creative, holistic and inspiring way. Design and Technology encourages children to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. At Coppull Parish C of E Primary School, we encourage children to use their creativity, curiosity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. The children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness and are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers. We recognise that not all families are equipped with the opportunities to have healthy lifestyles, so we place an emphasis upon this in our design and technology curriculum.


Underpinned by the following Coppull Parish curriculum drivers:

Healthy lifestyles:

We promote healthy lifestyles interweaving throughout our curriculum, giving the children at least 4 opportunities throughout the year to design, create and evaluate a healthy meal or product. 

Developing Speech and language:

A large part of our design and technology curriculum is based around discussion and evaluation. Within this, we promote a variety of rich vocabulary to discuss and evaluate.


As a fair trade school, we give the children lots of opportunities to learn about different food around the world, as well as a cross curricular approach to a diverse food curriculum linked to different countries and religions around the world.
