Design & Technology Curriculum Intent

At St Swithun Wells, we want pupils to be inspired to be creative and experience opportunities which will give them insight into the world of engineering, design, technology (including food) etc to prepare them for the wider world.


Design & Technology Curriculum Implementation

The teaching of design technology at St Swithun Wells follows the design, make and evaluate cycle. Choice and range is important to give meaning to what pupils are learning. Pupils acquire and apply knowledge and understanding  of materials and components, mechanisms and controls, structures, quality and health and safety. Design technology has links with many other subject areas and teachers use the planning process to ensure that this is appropriate and purposeful.

We follow KAPOW scheme for the planning and delivery of the DT curriculum.
