Curriculum Intent

Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. 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, wants and values.

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. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the that teaches the children key skills and knowledge about the design and making process.”

National Curriculum 2014

  Through Design and Technology we want our pupils to:

  • design develop plan, and communicate ideas
  • work with tools, equipment, materials and components to make quality products
  • evaluate processes and products
  • learn about food and nutrition.

Integral to our Design Technology provision is providing excellent opportunities for the children to interrogate, design, make and evaluate a range of products. These will allow children to develop key skills using a variety of different media.

Our curriculum is planned so that Design and Technology can be intertwined with other subjects, which gives the children a solid context for their learning.

We are committed to enabling all children to make excellent progress in their knowledge and skills in Design Technology. Our expectations for what should be achieved by the end of each year group are divided into four key areas:

  • Designing
  • Making
  • Evaluating
  • Food

Curriculum Impact

Design and Technology is assessed and developed through the use of Foundation Subject Formative Assessment. The impact of the Design and Technology curriculum is monitored by the subject leader and evidenced in an annual portfolio.
