Design Technology

What are we aiming for?

At High Hesket CE School, children receive a design and technology curriculum which enables them to develop their creativity and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and successfully. Children’s interests are supported, ensuring that links are made in a cross curricular way, giving children motivation and meaning for their learning. Using our BLP curriculum drivers children are taught to combine their designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users. Children have the opportunity to understand where food comes from and apply the principles of nutrition as they learn to cook. Evaluation is an essential part of the D&T process and allows children to adapt and improve their product. Children learn new skills progressively, building on prior learning and skills taught as they move through the school. These are key skills which they will take into further education and can transfer to other areas of life.

How do we get there?
