Design & Technology Statement of Intent
Our design and technology provision uses a progressive skills based approach to allow our pupils to take part in designing, making, evaluating and developing their technical knowledge to access a range of different projects such as cam mechanisms, levers and pulleys. Alongside this children gain valuable life skills through the cooking and nutrition element of our provision.

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. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as science, mathematics, engineering, computing and art. 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 it's 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 nation.
