Design Technology

Intent
At Heytesbury Primary School, it is our intention that Design and Technology encourages children to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. We encourage children to use their creativity and imagination to solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs wants and values.

We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. The children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness and are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers.
