Design and Technology

Our Design Technology curriculum helps children to become problem solvers through practical tasks, using creativity and imagination. Design technology draws its information from human knowledge and is concerned with the manipulation of materials and systems to meet human needs. Our aim is that our design and technology curriculum supports pupils to learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.


Our teaching and implementation of the Design and Technology Curriculum is based on the National Curriculum.  The statutory requirements allow us to devise our own scheme and units of work.  In order for our pupils to exhibit their practical problem solving skills, creativity and imagination we ensure they are taught the basic design skills, techniques and knowledge and  have the opportunity to practice those skills. Pupils are given opportunities in a variety of contexts including cooking and nutrition, textiles, mechanisms, mechanical  and electrical components, sheet materials and moldable materials, all provided within a framework that outlines a progression of basic skills at each key stage, ensuring a well-structured approach to this creative subject. Our pupils are taught design and technology as part of their termly topic work, where pupils acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. The integrity of the subject has been maintained so that children receive a good quality experience across the curriculum.
