Design Technology - Subject Intent
Design Technology gives all pupils the opportunity to learn future life skills in a safe and supported classroom or workshop environment. All pupils are able to enjoy the discovery of the cause and effect of different tools and processes which enable them to create objects and as they progress with their learning they experience a sense of ownership and pride. Pupils discover that manufacturing processes lead to a useful and purposeful product that can be taken home. Alongside these values’ DT helps to develop a sense of keeping safe and being responsible whilst working with tools and in a working environment. Pupils experience a wide range of practical experiences including CAD and electronics, that enable them to learn, enjoy and develop skills, including motor skills, whilst making a range of products with different uses. The subject is delivered across the school to cater for a range of different pathways and abilities with the exciting opportunity, where appropriate, for pupils to gain an accreditation. Overall, we aspire to provide pupils with the opportunity to develop problem solving skills, curiosity, confidence and resilience that they can transfer to all areas of their lives.
