Welcome to the primary and early years section of the website. Here we have gathered together a wide range of materials to suppport both subject leaders and non subject specialists in art, craft and design.

This section is divided into three areas. National Developments will keep you updated with government reviews, reports and initiatives to include the Primary Review and Early Years Foundation Stage review, and initiatives and opportunities from the cultural sector.

The Resources section signposts you to the Start magazine archive, units of work, the online bookshop and a museum and gallery section.

The Classroom Practice section provides you with ideas for the classroom, for teaching and learning outside the classroom and for settings other than in school.
