Design & Technology Curriculum Intent

Design & Technology Curriculum Intent

To build and apply a repertoire of technical knowledge, understanding and skills (drawing on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing, art, textiles and cooking) in order to design, make and evaluate a wide variety of high-quality prototypes and products based on the principles: user, purpose, functionality, design decisions, innovation and authenticity. Through this inspiring, rigorous and practical subject, children will gain the expertise to take risks, and become resourceful, enterprising and capable citizens needed to excel in an increasingly technological world.

“High-quality teaching and learning permeates the school and across an exciting curriculum. Teachers ensure that lessons are purposeful and busy, and pupils are supported skilfully by high-quality teaching assistants” Ofsted 2018

Introduction to Design & Tecnology

Introduction to Design & Tecnology

Design and Technology at Kentmere Academy and Nursery is about designing and making something, for someone, for some purpose. It involves investigating, planning, evaluating and using a wide range of materials and equipment in different situations. Design and Technology involves learning about the world we live in and developing the technical knowledge and skills that enable our children to make products that people want and that work well.
