Design Technology

Through our Design Technology lessons, we aim to develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and for our pupils to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world.

We ask our pupils to build and apply their knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products with an appreciation of the user. We encourage our pupils to critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and that of others. We also aim to provide an understanding of the benefits of healthy eating, nutrition and how to cook.

Pupils learn through practical activities and are given opportunities to explore, observe, solve problems, predict and discuss ideas. They are given the opportunity to use a range of tools within the classroom setting and understand how to use equipment safely.
