At All Saints CEVA Primary School, we believe that Design Technology develops the potential of each child to design and make things in the world we live in today, to solve practical problems and meet individual needs. It provides a balance in which the creative and practical capabilities of pupils can be developed and inter-related. Design Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject which helps children to bring their ideas to life and show how their minds work.
Using creativity and imagination, 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. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.
