Design and Technology
Design and technology is an inspiring and practical subject. Pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, thinking about their own needs and those of others. Design Technology has strong links with Science, Mathematics, Communication Technology and Art.
Pupils learn how to think creatively and complete tasks practically developing a range of skills. Through the evaluation of past and present designs, pupils can understand the way technology works in their own lives and that of others.
Our curriculum for Design and Technology aims to ensure that all pupils:
develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world
build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users
critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
