Design and Technology

Intent Statement – Design & Technology

At Hedworth Lane Primary School, we aspire to be our own creators and innovators.  Design and Technology provides pupils with opportunities to initiate investigation and allows them to exercise their creativity through designing and making.   Pupils will be inspired by designers, engineers, architects and chefs to design and create their own products which have a real-life purpose.  Children create a range of structures, mechanisms, textiles, electrical systems and food products with increasing confidence and develop crucial problem-solving skills along the way.  Evaluation is a key part of the process and, at Hedworth Lane Primary School, we encourage children to adapt and improve their product – a key transferable skill that they can use throughout their lives.
