Design and Technology (DT)

At Grazeley Primary School we aim to provide children with a Design and Technology education that is relevant in our rapidly changing world. We encourage children to become creative and imaginative problem solvers as individuals and part of a team. Pupils evaluate, design and make functional products to solve real and relevant problems, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.

Through the study of Design and Technology, children combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues. It provides children with a greater awareness and understanding of how everyday products are made allowing them to become informed future consumers as well as potential innovators.

We value Design and Technology as an intrinsic part to STEM and links between these four subjects are made explicit to the children. We provide opportunities to take part in STEM learning, building skills they can apply to many fields of work in the future.
