Art and DT

Our Art and DT Subject Leaders are: Miss Bantoft and Miss Sutton 


At Disley, we place a great emphasis on the importance of Art and Design. It enables children to express themselves in a creative, imaginative manner and through exploration. We intend to teach the children a skills-based curriculum, with individuality and creativeness flowing through everything they do.


At Disley Primary School, we use access art to ensure a progressive approach to the teaching of art. All units are underpinned by a strand, outlined in the overview document below. Children are taught on a two-yearly rolling programme. 

For the teaching of DT, we follow the design and technology association's scheme. Once again, this ensures a progressive approach to the teaching of Design and Technology and ensures skillls and learning build over time. 

Both programmes offer instant CPD for all staff to ensure teaching and learning is supported to ensure it is of the highest quality for the pupils. 


Children will be become creative learners, who have a web of knowledge about the great artists of the world. Creativity and uniqueness will be celebrated and children will become astute at editing and improving the pieces they have created. As teachers, there will be an emphasis placed on individuality and children will be given the freedom to explore art using their imaginations. Children will have embedded the key art and design skills needed to allow them to produce inventive pieces of art.
