Statement of Intent 2021-2022
A place where our children, adults and community can grow and thrive rooted in
Kindness, Fellowship and Confidence.
At Stanhope Barrington C of E Primary School, we provide a challenging, broad and balanced Art and Design curriculum which provides our children with a wealth of sources and stimuli to inspire their inner creative selves. Our carefully planned curriculum ensures a clear progression of skills allowing all children to be inspired and challenged to invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As our children progress through school, they should begin to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of Art and Design. Our children also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. Specific planned opportunities allow children to be engaged in evaluating and analysing creative works using the correct language of art, craft and design.
Weardale inspires us to engage with our talented, local community who provide a diverse selection of traditional talents. Our school is based in an Area of Outstanding National Beauty which encompasses a UNESCO geopark, a number of conservation areas and has a rich mining heritage all of which are exploited to enrich the children’s education. Extra-curricular activities also provide unique opportunities to work with local Artists and celebrate our exceptional culture.

Incredible You – To start the new academic year the children have been using the story ‘Incredible You’ for their learning. The children listened to the story before being set the mission to draw a self-portrait. The children were provided with mirrors and pencils before making some fabulous creations. The excellent art work has now been displayed in the Key Stage 1 corridor for all of the school to see.
