Design Technology

At St Mary's we believe that '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.' (The National Curriculum in England Framework Document (DfE) 2014)

We strive to provide a design technology curriculum that all pupils will find enjoyable as well as understanding the relevance of their lessons. Class teachers will provide interesting, relevant, purposeful and differentiated lessons based on real-life experiences, wherever possible, in a structured well ordered classroom environment.
