Much of our national prosperity depends on technology through design and manufacturing industries. Children are encouraged to understand the importance of this process and to use their own enterprise and initiative when designing and creating a range of items.
We use units of work written by the Nuffield Foundation to support staff skills. We aim to develop skills throughout the school and build upon previous skills in later years. Design and Technology work is often taught in ‘blocks’ so that children gain a deeper understanding of the processes involved.
