Design Technology

Through the use of 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.

Our Curriculum for Design 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 understand how to cook
