Curriculum Intent of Design Technology


Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject.

Design and Technology At Shustoke School, instils the qualities such as curiosity, enquiry and determination. We want children to be inspired, engaged and excited. Design Technology encourages children to learn, to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. At Shustoke, 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. We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. The children are 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.
