Do I need CNAME for subdomains to work?

My DNS is currently managed in Cloudflare ( NameServer to domain registrar )

I have a dummy Wordpress site at ( non secure only at the moment ). The site loads fine but a subdomain, will not load ( no errors, etc from the browser ).

My IT person says we only need the A Record to point t the IP address and he will handle subdomains on the server. Is this accurate? Cloudflare’s own notices inform me that without a CNAME, will not resolve. So how can resolve if will not? Thanks.
