Design and Technology

Overview 23-24
Policy 23-24
Progression 23-24

Our goal for Design and Technology education is to create ‘Agents of Change’ through our rigorous and practical DT curriculum. We want our children to be creative thinkers and problem solvers, so we give them opportunities to develop the skills they need to solve real and relevant problems in a variety of contexts through our three ‘Big Ideas’:

  • Design – I use creativity, experience and experimentation to design new products.

  • Skills – I learn and apply practical skills and technical knowledge in the making process.

  • Evaluate – I evaluate my designs and products to improve them.

Through the study of Design and Technology, children combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industrial practices. This allows them to reflect on and evaluate present and past design and technology, its uses and its impacts.

Design and Technology helps all our children to become astute and informed future consumers and potential innovators.

Miss Jewitt is our DT lead. Please contact her via the school office (01772 653600) with any queries or questions.
