'Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful' - William Morris
Design and Technology requires our children to apply knowledge and skills to solve practical problems. It involves identifying needs, generating design ideas, planning, making and appraising. It spans the curriculum and supports work in other subjects.
Through well planned tasks, which allow the children to achieve the targets within familiar contexts, they learn how to take risks and become resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. These are essential skills for our children to develop as they prepare to take their place as adults in society.
