Design Technology


Our curriculum prepares our children to deal with tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. It encourages children to become independent, creative problem-solvers and thinkers as individuals and as part of a team – making positive changes to their quality of life. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond to them by developing a range of ideas and by making products and systems.

Three big ideas are central to the teaching and learning of Design Technology at our school:

  • Skills development
  • Design
  • Evaluation

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.

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