Soho Parish Primary

Soho Parish Primary



At Soho Parish we place a strong emphasis on art, particularly through our topic-based curriculum. Our art and design curriculum is designed to engage, inspire and challenge pupils through their topic work, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.

Children also take part in a wide variety of whole school and external art projects to broaden their understanding and grow their confidence. Examples include a whole school mosaic project with Art4Space, building a Sukkot in collaboration with St James' church and Jewish partners, and a project with the Royal Academy around the artist Richard Diebenkorn which culminated in their work being exhibited at an international syposium in Shanghai.

Art is further celebrated through our annual themed Art Week.

Art on the Underground projectAs pupils progress, they are encouraged to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design, as well as know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation
