Our Gamston Curriculum for Design & Technology

Our Subject Leader for D&T is Mrs Greaves


Design and Technology prepares children to take part in the development of today’s rapidly changing world. Creative thinking encourages children to make positive changes to their quality of life.

D&T encourages children to become autonomous and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond by developing ideas and eventually making products and systems.

Through the study of D&T they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industrial practices. This allows them to reflect on and evaluate past and present design and technology and to develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.

Design and technology helps all children to become discriminating and informed consumers and innovators.
