Design & Technology

We encourage all our pupils to achieve and develop their creative skills. Through our creative curriculum we are able to give children plenty of time to apply their Design and Technology skills.

We follow the Department for Education' s National Curriculum programmes of study for Key Stages 1 and 2, details of which are published on the DfE's website:

We Aim to:

  • Teach children the skills to design and create a product
  • Link with skills from Maths, Science, Literacy and Computing
  • Equip children with the skills to take risks and become resourceful with their tools
  • Give children the opportunities to evaluate designs and critically analyse the impact they have on the wider world
  • Give children the skills to create draft work to evaluate and test
  • Develop cooking skills and understand the importance of nutrition
