Design and Technology


We believe that all children in our school should have the opportunity to develop a creative mindset, become innovative designers and to critically evaluate their own work. We think that is it vital that children have access to a wide range of materials and resources that can allow them to experiment with design, technique and creativity. The problem solving and critical thinking skills acquired through design technology lessons will be used across the whole school curriculum.
