Year 7
During the course of the year pupils with have had the opportunity to ‘engage confidently with art, craft and design in the contemporary world and from different times and cultures’. They will have used colour, form, texture, pattern and different materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think. Through a variety of art and design activities, they will have learned to make informed value judgements and aesthetic and practical decisions. They will also have explored ideas and meanings in the work of artists, craftspeople and designers as well as learning about the diverse roles and functions of art, craft and design in contemporary life, and in different times and cultures. Teachers will have differentiated the work by task, outcome, media, scale, but above all through individual pupil support using a variety of teaching styles suited to visual, audio and kinaesthetic learners.

Year 8
In year 8 pupils will have been given greater challenges to expand their capacity to solve design problems. They will have had the opportunity to ‘engage confidently with art, craft and design in the contemporary world and from different times and cultures’. They will have used colour, form, texture, pattern and different materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think. Through a growing variety of art and design activities, they will have learned to make informed value judgements and aesthetic and practical decisions. They will also have explored ideas and meanings in the work of artists, craftspeople and designers. They will have learned about the diverse roles and functions of art, craft and design in contemporary life, and in different times and cultures. Teachers will have differentiated the work by task, outcome, media, scale, but above all through individual pupil support using a variety of teaching styles suited to visual, audio and kinaesthetic learners.

Year 9
In year 9 the emphasis will be given to the production of ‘units ‘of work showing a sustained line of enquiry. Good planning, reference gathering, use of media and presentation will be encouraged to further pupils understanding of the methodology required for G.C.S.E. Art and Design. Pupils should be able to make a valid assessment of their potential for success on a G.C.S.E. course. At the end of year 9 we would expect all pupils to have reached an accepted standard pf performance against the ‘end of key stage 3 levels of attainment’ of the National Curriculum. They should have made suitable progress based on their prior attainment. We would expect the majority of pupils to have attained at least level 6 by the end of key stage 3.
