Curriculum Intent for Design Technology


Our aim is to provide a high-quality design technology education to ensure that all pupils have faith in developing the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world. Thus, flourishing and achieving their full potential in this subject.

Our curriculum is sequenced and designed to develop a life-long love of learning by revisiting, remembering and applying old skills and learning new skills to achieve the objectives set by the 2014 National Curriculum.

The curriculum is to promote and develop new skills and challenge the children to have high aspirations in a nurturing and inclusive environment. Children remember, apply and build upon those skills in order to progress and develop new knowledge and look at designers, chefs and architects.

It is vital that our children are able to critique, design, evaluate and test their own ideas and products as well as the work of others. We encourage the children to show kindness and respect of each other’s work reflecting the school’s Christian values rooted in God’s love.

By the end of each key stage, children are expected to know, apply moral values and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study.

Through a journey of exploration, the children learn to understand and apply the principles of nutrition, learn how to cook, understand the importance of healthy eating and how to keep safe in the kitchen.
