Design and Technology


In accordance to our curriculum intent we feel Design and Technology should:

HEAD: aid development of pupil skills and provide problems to solve 

HEART: challenge stereotypes and be aware of sustainability 

HANDS: encourage creative ways to solve problems and be memorable for our pupils  

Design and Technology helps you to teach Maths and English and indeed other compulsory subjects on the curriculum in a fun manner and put these subjects into context making them easier to digest and more understandable to younger primary age pupils.
Design and Technology gives children the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of designing and making functional products. We feel it is vital to nurture creativity and innovation through design, and by exploring the designed and made world in which we all live and work.

Formative judgements are made through observations, marking and recorded through Teacher App. Summative assessments are usually made at the end of a unit through a triangulation of observations, evidence in books and assessment tasks stated in the medium term plans.
The D&T coordinator and Headteacher runs the Design and Technology section of the PGCE course at the Faculty of Education, Cambridge University.  He also delivers training to two SCITT hubs and six different individual schools.
