Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject which prepares children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. Pupils acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.

Our curriculum encourages children to become autonomous and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond by developing ideas and making products and systems. This programme of study is a coherently planned sequence of lessons to ensure skills are progressive and the aims of the National Curriculum have been met.

Our pupils are inspired through a broad range of practical experiences to create innovative designs which solve real and relevant problems within a variety of different contexts. Our pupils have the opportunity to explore their ideas, critically evaluate existing products and innovate, taking risks when designing solutions to the problems. Our culture of expecting, respecting, inspecting and correcting mistakes ensures that resilience is built upon by building in time to reflect, evaluate and improve on products using design criteria to support this process.

Through their study, pupils combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues. This allows them to reflect on and evaluate present and past design and technology, its uses and its impacts. Opportunities are given for pupils to evaluate key events and individuals who have shaped the local area and the world, showing the real impact of design and technology on society, developing pupil’s awareness of local and global responsibility. This ensures that pupils are aware how Design and Technology both reflect and shape our history and influence the future.

Each teaching group focuses on different themes, to ensure continued interest in the subject as well as acquiring new subject knowledge and skills. The lessons taught develop their techniques, including their control and

their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation, function and an increasing awareness of different kinds of Design and Technology.

Design and Technology learning is loved by teachers and pupils across school. Teachers have high expectations and quality evidence can be presented in a variety of ways. All pupils use technical vocabulary accurately and pupils know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified. Our high-quality Design and Technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.
