Design Technology

Whole School Curriculum Intent

To inspire and nurture our learners to feel empowered and able to become responsible citizens in the community and wider world, whilst motivating them to aspire and achieve the highest standards.

Design Technology Curriculum Intent

Design and Technology is an inspiring and practical subject. It offers encouragement for children to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. Here at Christ the King, we encourage children to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. Wherever possible we aim to link work to other areas such as mathematics, science, computing and art. The children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness and are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers.
