The schemes of work below have a variety of approaches to planning Art & Design, and most will fulfill the attainment targets that the National Curriculum requires. A couple also allow individual units to be purchased, rather than the whole scheme. We also have a separate page for Design & Technology schemes of work.

Scheme Support is also a member of the Amazon Associate programme. We receive a small affiliate revenue from any Amazon product link you purchase from below which goes towards supporting the site.
