Design and Technology Intent 

Our Design and technology curriculum is intended to equip children with the creativity, imagination and skills required to thrive in our ever-changing technological world. We want children to feel confident in thinking beyond the classroom and to solve real world problems (that actually exist) whilst evaluating their achievements.  All pupils will have the experience of working with tools and various types of technology to discover how and why the world’s greatest inventions exist and how they contribute to our everyday lives. By the time our children move into their own careers our world will have evolved even further and because of this we are encouraging children to think differently and our curriculum strives to prepare them for being able to evolve with the world.
