The Arts

At Hollywood Primary School, we view the Arts as opportunities for pupils to be creative and imaginative. This is through drama, dance, music and visual art.

Through the arts, we give children a range of experiences to captivate and motivate them, allowing them to creatively explore new ideas. Children with a range of abilities and needs have the opportunity to creatively express their ideas and emotions and in turn progress both personally and academically.

Art and design is not just a subject to learn, but an activity that you can practise: with your hands, your eyes, your whole personality.

We aim to give children a wide variety of high-quality art experiences, using a variety of media for drawing, painting, printing, collage and sculpture that engage and challenge our pupils.

Our scheme of work, developed from the national curriculum, includes aspects of appreciation, art history and experimentation. Artists and styles and cultures from around the world are studied. Our art lessons are incorporated across the curriculum, making learning fun and accessible for all pupils.

At Hollywood, we have been accepted to work towards gaining out Artsmark. We believe every child should have the opportunity to create, compose, and perform, as well as to visit, experience, participate in and review extraordinary work. Artsmark can help unlock the potential of children and young people, help to develop character and talent, and increase their knowledge and understanding. That’s why Artsmark was created: to bring this ambition to life in every classroom. This award ensures our commitment to ‘The Arts’ and our vision is to embed this culture firmly within our curriculum.
