Design and Technology

Design and Technology at St Joseph’s encourages pupils to become autonomous and creative problem solvers, both as individuals and as members of a team.

In lessons, are pupils are presented with different scenarios and situations requiring Design and Technology and they respond to such challenges by developing a range of ideas. From these ideas, the children combine their practical skills with an understanding of aesthetics and function to create and make products. This is all supported within a framework designed to address social and environmental issues.

Through Design and Technology, they reflect on present and past design, and by evaluation, both from the pupil and teacher manipulate their work for improvement. Design and Technology stimulates understanding and innovation in pupils by creating a wide range of products in school.

Children are encouraged to discover Design and Technology with enthusiasm and commitment and are encouraged to be the very best they can be and our aim is for everyone to reach their full potential secure and happy environment.
