The Design and Technology (DT) curriculum at our school, in alignment with the National Curriculum, aims to inspire creativity, innovation, and practical problem-solving skills in our pupils. We believe that DT plays a fundamental role in preparing our pupils for the future, equipping them with the knowledge, skills, and understanding to design, make, and evaluate a range of products and solutions for real-life challenges across various contexts.

Our DT curriculum is designed to develop learners who have:

  • the ability to use time efficiently and work constructively and productively with others;
  • The ability to carry out thorough research, show initiative and ask questions to develop a detailed knowledge of users’ needs;
  • the ability to act as responsible designers and makers, working ethically, using finite materials carefully and working safely;
  • a thorough knowledge of which tools, equipment and materials to use to make their products;
  • the ability to apply mathematical knowledge;
  • the ability to manage risks to manufacture products safely and hygienically;
  • a passion for the subject and knowledge of, up-to-date technological innovations in materials, products and systems;
  • significant levels of originality and the willingness to take creative risks to produce innovative ideas and prototypes.
