Vision for Art

At Oatlands School we aim to inspire a broad range of exciting, artistic and relevant experiences which fuels creative imagination.  Art at Oatlands promotes diversity, respect and intercultural understanding, enhanced well-being, self-esteem and confidence, fostering transferable skills and supporting problem solving. Children develop high standards of skills and techniques in painting, drawing, photography and multimedia, animation, printing, mixed media, sculpture and installation. Through traditional and contemporary practice children at Oatlands are encouraged to express themselves creatively and have a voice to be heard.

Art at Oatlands is recognised for its collaboration with arts organisations and its many achievements locally, nationally and internationally and celebrates creative expression and individuality for all children.

Vision for Design and Technology

‘The achievement of one goal should be the starting point of another’. (Alexander Graham Bell - scientist, inventor, engineer, and innovator who patented the first practical telephone)

At Oatlands Junior School, Design and Technology gives children the opportunity to develop a broad range of skills and knowledge through an exciting range of projects which focus on design, structures, mechanisms, electrical control and a range of materials, including food. As a school we aim to nurture creativity and innovation in Design and Technology looking at its contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation inspiring future aspirations.
