Design and Technology Intent 

We believe a high-quality Design and Technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation. To ensure this, we have designed and implemented an ambitious curriculum in consultation with the Design & Technology Association, which meets and goes beyond the end points of the National Curriculum. 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.
