Creative Arts ( Art, Design & Technology and Music)

Research indicates creative arts, including music, drama and art significantly impacts cognitive development, increases self-esteem, and actively engages everyone in learning.


At St Luke's we believe that the arts offer opportunities for the children to explore, express and communicate their feelings whilst gaining experiences of the wider world. Through experiencing the arts, children develop their creativity, self-esteem and confidence.


Children at St Luke's Primary School are provided with a broad and rounded education. All pupils are given opportunities linked to a wide range of arts experiences as part of and in addition to the curriculum. We employ a specialist music teacher and take part in performances and concerts both in and out of school. We believe all children should have equal access to the arts and we are committed to offering our children the chance to visit many of London's cultural venues and work with well known arts organisations such as the London Symphony Orchestra. All the children take part in the National Gallery's Take One Picture project in the spring term as part of an art led enquiry project based around a painting in the National Gallery collection.


Design and Technology prepares children to deal with tomorrow's rapidly changing world. It encourages children to become independent, creative problem solvers and think as individuals and part of a team. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond to them by developing a range of ideas and by making products and systems. Through the study of Design and Technology, they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industry. This allows them to reflect on and evaluate past and present technology, it's uses and impacts. Children design products with a purpose in mind and an intended user of the products.


Food technology is implemented across the school with children developing an understanding of where food comes from, the importance of a varied and healthy diet and how to prepare this.


Creative Arts is a crucial part of school life and learning and it is for this reason that as a school we are dedicated to the teaching and delivery of a high quality Creative curriculum; through well planned and resourced projects and experiences.


As well as providing a creative and enriched Arts curriculum, we also provide a range of exciting clubs for the children, including many that are arts-based.
