Art, Pottery & Design Partnership

Partner: Cranborne Primary School, Potters Bar
Partner type: Maintained School
Project category: Design and Technology


We are offer ing the services of our Art & Design Coordinator free of charge as a Subject Adviser and teacher for a half day or a full day every Friday during term time from September 2017.


The planning and teaching time, as well as any tools and equipment needed for each project undertaken, are funded by Stormont School – all Cranborne need to provide are the materials, and a classroom; we can travel to them and, working with them, we can devise a tailor-made project/scheme of work that meets their needs and the national curriculum, which their staff can adapt and use – making this is a virtually free CPD opportunity as well. We can also offer to host Art & Design sessions / days on Fridays at Stormont, with access to our Art Room, Pottery Studio and/or D&T Workshop.


Aims of the project

 To give children  enhanced opportunites to learn, develop new skills and broaden their experiences.

Background and goals

Ther partnership was proposed by our Art & Design Coordinator in Summer 2017, and we then wrote to all 6 local primary schools; three responded and we started in September 2017


We fund one teacher, planning and equipment for half day weekyl sessions for a year at a time.

Partnership schools provide space, materials and staff in the classroom to support.


 We will seek verbal feedback each term and a short written evaluation, to see aht we can do to improve what we are offering each child.

Pupil involvement

 60 pupils are involved in groups of 30 that change over each half term. They are in mixed gender classes from Years 3 / 4.

Frequency and duration

 Thr sesions are weekly on Fridays in term time. They start at 12.00 and run until 2.30/3.00pm each week.

They may continue for the rest of the year, and at least for this term.
