Design Technology

Inspire • Enrich • Enjoy • Succeed


Our Federation's Design and Technology curriculum gives children the opportunity to develop a broad range of skills and knowledge needed to engage in processes of designing and making. Right from the start, children in nursery and foundation stage will be encouraged to examine everyday objects and talk about their function and design. The emphasis will be on exploration, enjoyment, and discussion. This will continue to be embedded throughout KS1 and KS2 with our whole school progression of knowledge, skills and vocabulary.


At STW, we will inspire and engage pupils to create products connected to their current topic with a clear purpose, and apply a range of cross curricular skills, including mathematics, science and computing and art. We will give our pupils opportunities to enrich their creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real-life and relevant problems. Our aim is to nurture creativity and innovation in Design and Technology, looking at its contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth, and well-being of the nation. Our hope is for our pupils to be problem solvers who are not afraid of making mistakes. We hope our pupils will succeed as designers, engineers and makers and that they will make a positive contribution to society.
