Technology Statement of Intent

Design and Technology aims to support children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. To allow teachers the flexibility to deliver high-quality lessons we teach through a theme; this allows teachers to make links with other areas in the curriculum. There is to be more of a focus on preparing children their “future life”. We aim to ensure children are supported with the changing world and hope to be able to prepare them for their futures on aspects of food, designing and the different technologies.

Aims of Technology

The national curriculum for technology and our progression of skills within each milestone aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • To master skills in food, materials, textiles, electrical and construction equipment.
  • To take part in projects where they design a product to a specified brief, make it, evaluate it against the specification and carry out improvements.
  • To take inspiration from designs in history and create innovative designs that improve existing products.
