Primary: Excellent Art, Craft and Design

Primary Art, Craft and Design: Planning, Progression, Assessment


Understanding planning, progression and assessment in Art, Craft and Design


Planning an art curriculum from EYFS to Key Stage 2 requires a whole school approach, the development of a common language and shared understanding of the subject amongst teachers.

This one day training course, led by Susan Coles, will focus on two areas of the Art, Craft and Design National Curriculum: drawing and painting (whilst still referencing, printmaking, sculpture, textiles, collage and digital media).

The day is designed to develop Primary Art Leaders’ understanding of planning, progression and assessment within the context of the Art, Craft and Design curriculum. Susan will explore how good quality, effective planning has assessment criteria embedded within it, ensuring that the teaching of Art, Craft and Design includes a robust and meaningful process and a high quality final art work.


Delegates will:
  • Explore how to plan a visual art curriculum across key stages which includes progression (of pupil’s making skills, generation of ideas and knowledge and understanding)
  • Participate in a number of practical activities than can be replicated in the classroom.
  • Develop their understanding of age related expectations within the context of drawing and painting.
  • Identify how to assess children’s progress in Art, Craft and Design in a simple and user friendly way
