Design and Technology

Design and technology prepares children for our rapidly changing world. This subject 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, to respond by developing ideas and making products, and allows them to reflect on and evaluate designs. We provide a range of experiences that encourage exploration, observation, problem solving, critical thinking and discussion though indoor and outdoor activities. We use the local environment and our topic plans as the starting point for design and technology work. Cross-curricular teaching gives pupils more context and purpose for their projects. We give children of all abilities the opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding through increasingly challenging them as they move through the school.
