Design Technology

Exodus 35:31 

'And he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, with intelligence, with knowledge, and with all craftsmanship.'

Curriculum Intent

All children are creative and are imaginative, students design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs and values.

Students through being creative learn how to take risks, become resourceful, determined, innovative and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present products, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world which enables them to experience life to the full, both in the world of work and leisure for their future.

The Design and Technology & Food curriculum is designed to be progressive, so that students can build on the skills and knowledge they learn, and master them. 

We hope to develop creative thinkers allowing them to feel safe and confident in their learning environment so that they are able to critique, test and evaluate their ideas and products and the work of others, respectfully.
