Curriculum Intent Statement for Design Technology


In Design Technology, we develop the children’s Knowledge and Skills in line with the school’s vision for Knowledge and Skills based curriculum.

We inspire Creativity by providing a curriculum that has a real life context for learning, encouraging our learners to aspire to be more, through creating opportunities that link with the wider world.

We encourage Discovery by designing opportunities to encourage leaners to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness so that they are inspired to become innovators and risk-takers.

We foster a Curiosity of learning through the study of the work of engineers, designers, chefs and architects.

We develop Independence by encouraging learners to ‘have a go’ and draw on links with prior learning.

We instil Resilience by providing challenging experiences and encouraging learners to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team.


As a result the children Respect and Value DT and are Lifelong learners.
