Design & Technology

The 2014 National Curriculum for Design and Technology aims to ensure that all pupils

 

  • develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world
  • build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users
  • critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
  • understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.

Through our Design and Technology curriculum and enrichment provision, we aim to nurture the following essential characteristics of a designer:

 

  • to shows originality and a willingness to take creative risks
  • to know which tools, equipment and materials to use to make their products.
  • to be able to work constructively and productively with others.
  • to carry out thorough research, show initiative and ask questions.
  • to manufacture products safely and hygienically.
