Design & Technology – curriculum information

“Our vision is to ensure that all pupils use their creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems whilst considering their own and other’s needs within a variety of contexts.

As they work on their products, children will learn how to take risks, whilst becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.

We aspire for our pupils to develop the skills and knowledge they will need to make a contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation as Design Technologists.”
