Subject Overview:

Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject which encourages children to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. It requires children to be active learners with the confidence to ‘have a go,’ and the resilience to persist with a project when challenges occur.

 

Through Design Technology children are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers by building on their skills through taught sequences. High-quality Design and Technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.

 The national curriculum for design and 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
