Projects in KS3 are designed to introduce pupils to new skills and approaches to working in art. Projects run for a whole term, enabling a wide range of experiences and challenges. Pupils are encouraged to keep sketchbooks and ICT as not only a research tool but one which develops skills and understanding through art specific programs.
Assessment within the Art and Design Department is a vital element of both the teaching and learning. Student progress is assessed both formatively and summatively
Assessment at Key Stage 3 is measured against level descriptors outlined within the National Curriculum for Art and Design
Students are aware of both their working levels and target levels, and regularly set individual targets for improvement.
