The Arts and PE

Arts

Children at Hampton Infant School and Nursery enjoy the exploration and creation of Art and Design, and are equipped with the necessary skills to do so. The children feel safe enough in their environment to take risks and challenge themselves.  At West Lodge, The children are given the opportunity to explore their individuality through autonomy within lessons. We aim for all of our children to have access to and enjoy the curriculum as well as the wide range of extra curricula activities.  They should all be given the opportunity to express themselves through music and be uplifted by music and song. The children experience music from all around the world and gain knowledge of other cultures whilst listening to, performing and even composing an assortment of music styles.
