An inspiring, rigorous and practical subject that encourages children to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems, both as individuals and as members of a team.
We encourage children to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems, within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.
We link work, wherever possible, to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Children are given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness and are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers.
