Art and Design

At Acton CEVC Primary School we believe that art and design stimulates creativity and imagination and provides children with a unique way of understanding and responding to the world. It enables children to communicate what they see, feel and think, through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes and they learn to make informed judgements, and aesthetic and practical decisions. Through learning about the roles and functions of art, we want children to have the opportunity to explore the impact it has had on contemporary life and on different periods and cultures as we recognise that art enriches all of our lives.

St Peter's Church Christmas Tree Festival

Each year we take part in the Sudbury Christmas Tree Festival at St Peter's church. This event is run by the Rotary Club of Sudbury and all proceeds go to local charities. Every child in the school enjoys creating a sparkling tree decoration based on a theme and it is a great opportunity for the children to see their creations alongside the work of other organisations, charities, businesses and schools in the local community.

At Acton CEVC Primary School, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum where learning develops from:

  • Trips, visitors and first hand experiences
  • Curriculum days
  • Stimulating learning environments
  • Opportunities to create, perform and compete
  • Making links between areas of learning
  • Recognising our place in the community
