Intent for Design Technology


Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds, Healthy Futures.


In Design and Technology children are inspired to be creative and imaginative. 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. The children are taught to select and use appropriate tools safely and effectively to make a product. In all areas of Design and Technology the children are encouraged to consider the effectiveness of their designs and requirements of the product against the project title. 

Implementation for Design Technology 

We do the following in order to deliver our curriculum in Design Technology: 


  • Develop imaginative thinking in children to enable them to talk about what they like and dislike when designing and making;
  • Enable children to talk about how things work, and to draw and model their ideas;
  • Encourage children to select appropriate tools and techniques for making a product, whilst following safe procedures;
  • Explore attitudes towards the made world and how we live and work within it;
  • Develop an understanding of technological processes, products, and their manufacture, and contribution to our society;
  • Foster enjoyment, satisfaction and purpose in designing and making

Impact for Design Technology


Our DT Curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. If children are keeping up with the curriculum, they are deemed to be making good or better progress.

Curriculum coverage:

  • Each class should undertake at least three Design and Technology units per year.

  •  Using the plans provided the children will cover key aspects in DT.

  • Textiles, Structures, Mechanisms (KS1), Electrical or Mechanical Systems (KS2) and food technology.

  • Teachers are to use projects on a page programme of study and refer to Long Term Plan to ensure clear coverage and progression of skills are met.
