St. Paul’s C of E Primary School

Design & Technology (DT)

DT is important at St. Paul’s. We will articulate our school values of compassion, hope, trust and wisdom through inspiring pupils’ curiosity to know more about how things are made, problem solving and working collaboratively. Making sure staff are confident in teaching DT due to training and support. Children are confident in their learning due to a progression of skills followed throughout the school. 

We believe high quality teaching in DT should provide children with a real-life context for learning. Inspiring children through creating opportunities for them in the wider world. Through the DT curriculum, children should be inspired by engineers, designers, chefs and architects to enable them to create a range of structures, mechanisms, textiles, electrical systems and food products with a real-life purpose.

Through the study of DT Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative 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. DT makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture and well-being of the nation.
