Art and Design Rationale
Art is an integral part of school life at Horsley, and pupils and parents alike celebrate its place at the heart of the curriculum.
Each week all pupils have art lessons taught by a specialist teacher and local artist, covering a wide range of skills and techniques.
Art lessons taught at Horsley are always creative and stimulating and range from drawing and painting, to textiles, printmaking, sculpture and ceramics. The standard and range of art activities across the school far surpasses that normally found in primary schools. Children have contributed to many pieces of art work around the school including a Tile Tree and Values Tapestry and were recently involved in an ambitious whole-school sewing project to create a giant mural for the entrance foyer.
There are also popular after school art clubs two days a week and our annual Horsley Art Day, to enrich the pupils' programme of study.
