Design & Technology

Design and technology is an inspiring and practical subject which encourages children to work both independently and together.  Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs and wants. 

Pupils will acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on other subject areas such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.
