Design & Technology

Design and Technology prepares children to deal with our rapidly changing world. It encourages them to become independent, creative problem-solvers and thinkers as individuals and part of a team. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond to them by developing a range of ideas and by making products and systems. 

At Rosley CE School, we aim to inspire pupils to be innovative and creative in their approach and to develop an appreciation for the product design cycle through planning, creation, and evaluation. We aim, where possible, to make maximum use of links to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. We want pupils to develop the confidence to take risks, through drafting design concepts, modelling, and testing and to be reflective learners who evaluate their work and the work of others. We aim to build an awareness of the impact of design and technology on our lives and encourage pupils to become resourceful, enterprising citizens who will have the skills to contribute to future design advancements. 

Please find below the Progression in Design & Technology documents, which show the key knowledge and skills covered across the school.
