Our Art and Design curriculum at NSNPA aims to engage, inspire and challenge pupils. We encourage our pupils to be artists and use the skills taught to think critically, invent, explore ideas and express themselves. Pupils are encouraged to observe and think critically about art in many forms, to be curious and to ask and answer questions. The curriculum is designed to be transferable and to link to topics where possible to ensure real world application. As a school we want our pupils to feel inspired to use their imagination and achieve excellence.

Here is how our ASUPERHERO curriculum incorporates art and design:


We focus on a variety of artists to imitate and innovate work from and to support Cultural Capital gaps.
