Design and Technology

The aim of our DT curriculum is that all children will develop the traits necessary to become ‘Design Technologists’.  These are outlined below:  


The ability to carry out thorough research, show initiative and ask questions to develop an exceptionally 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 exceptionally well to manufacture products safely and hygienically.

A passion for the subject and knowledge of, up-to-date technological innovations in materials, products and systems. 


The Essential Learning Objectives:

• To master practical skills

• To design, make, evaluate and improve

• To take inspiration from design throughout history

The new National Design and Technology Curriculum (in England) came into force in September 2014.  To view a full copy of the current Primary School National Curriculum Design and Technology programmes of study, please click here
