Detail

This Ofsted survey report evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of art, craft and design education in schools and colleges in England. It is based principally on subject inspections of 96 primary schools, 91 secondary schools and 7 special schools between 2008 and 2011. This includes 5 visits in each phase to focus on an aspect of good practice. The report also draws on institutional inspections, 69 subject inspections in colleges, and visits to a sample of art galleries.

Part A focuses on the key inspection findings in the context of the continued popularity of the subject with pupils and students.

Part B considers how well the concerns about inclusion, creativity and drawing raised in Ofsted’s 2008 report, ‘Drawing together: art, craft and design in schools’, have been addressed.
