Design and Technology

Design and Technology aims to prepare pupils to participate in tomorrow’s rapidly changing technologies. Our Design and Technology curriculum is exciting, inventive and  fun . The Design and Technology curriculum aims for pupils to become autonomous and creative problem solvers, as individuals and members of a team. They will learn to look for needs, wants and opportunities and respond to them by developing a range of ideas and making products and systems using the thinking skills approach.

Pupils are taught skills in using tools and techniques in combining materials. They will then use the skills in the production of their designs. Built into this process of designing and making is evaluation of their own work and the work of others improving speaking and listening skills.

As part of their work with food, pupils have the opportunity to prepare, cook and apply the principles of nutrition and healthy eating. Children will be taught to:

  • use the basic principles of a healthy and varied diet to prepare dishes and
  • understand where food comes from.

What is very apparent across the school is the emphasis on opportunities to develop pupils’ key skills in all subjects, suitably celebrated through high quality displays throughout the school.”
