Design and Technology

Design and Technology Subject Leader: Mrs Boothroyd

At Kaye’s, we believe that Design and Technology should be delivered in a way that inspires pupils and allows for creativity and imagination to flourish.

We provide unique opportunities for our children to understand and discover Design and Technology from past and present designs and consider the impact these have had on daily life. When designing, children are encouraged to communicate their ideas through discussion with their peers, diagrams, mock-ups and prototypes, allowing for error and improvement through the process.  Over the Key Stages, they gain technical knowledge relating to structures, mechanisms, textiles and food technology and develop skills when using various tools, considering safety and building on accuracy. Our children are encouraged to evaluate their ideas and products along the way to meet both design briefs and also to allow for creative improvement.

As a school, we aim to build an understanding of the impact of design and technology in our daily lives and in the wider world. We encourage our children to become resourceful, creative and enterprising citizens who have the imagination and skills to impact the future.
