Art & Design: Statement of Intent

“Art has the role in education of helping children become more like themselves instead of more like everyone else.”                                               

Sydney Gurewitz Clemens

At Burhill Primary School, we value Art as an important part of the children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum. We provide opportunities for all children at our school to take part in memorable art experiences. Art is one of the foundation subjects in the National Curriculum and is an important part of developing children’s individual creativity. Aside from creativity, the Arts play a role in developing other key skills, such as problem solving, recognising different perspectives and resilience. Our aim is to foster a love of Art through ensuring that children can confidently approach their learning in this subject and feel a strong sense of achievement.


Burhill Primary School is delighted to have achieved the Artsmark Silver Award for 2020.  We are thrilled to be recognised as a school championing the Arts and are committed to enabling every child to explore as many areas or the Arts as possible.
