Design and Technology
Design and Technology is an important part of our curriculum, allowing pupils to work together to meet challenges in planning, designing and creating projects both individually and in groups.
Unlike Art, which is very much about the representation of our emotional response to a stimulus, the design process focuses on the end user and gradually equips pupils with the ability to think strategically and to plan effectively in order to reach a design outcome.
Pupils enjoy ‘hands-on’ activities and there is no better way to learn than by experience. We set design briefs that not only encourage pupils to be creative but will also teach them the necessary skills to communicate their ideas to others. Designs are often linked to the projects that pupils undertake, making the designs purposeful and meaningful.
