Purpose of Study

Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.

INTENT

At Whitechapel Church of England Primary School, it is our intention to deliver a high-quality design technology curriculum which inspires pupils at all ages to be creative, use their imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. Through DT it is our intent that pupils will have the opportunity to learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. They will have the opportunity to evaluate past and present design and technology and develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.

IMPEMENTATION

Design technology is implemented through a series of creative and practical activities which allows pupils to build up knowledge, understanding and skills of the design, make and evaluate process in a range of contexts. When designing pupils are given opportunities to develop an understanding of the context, user and purpose and have the time to generate, develop, model and communicate their ideas in a variety of ways. Pupils will safely practise a range of practical skills and techniques to make parts of products or a final product. They will have the opportunity to investigate and analyse own and existing products including key people and discuss how they are fit for purpose and meet design criteria.

IMPACT

At Whitechapel Church of England Primary School through a high-quality DT curriculum, pupils will have the knowledge, understanding and skills to enable them to grow as creative individuals ready for their next stage in learning to become resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.
