Design & Technology
Design and Technology
To encourage innovation, creativity and practicality in design, technical skill in making and realistic evaluation of completed items. To facilitate an understanding of the subject and enable the growth of knowledge in an increasingly technological world. To understand and apply the principles of nutrition and to learn how to cook. Pupils are already discriminating users and purchasers of a range of products. Design and Technology gives them the opportunity to become involved in the creative process: to plan and solve real and relevant problems in a range of contexts using a variety of materials, to develop confident and safe, making skills and to reflect upon the aesthetics and function of products generally. Pupils’ potential to be innovative producers, as well as informed consumers, is fostered in this subject.
