Design and technology aims to ensure that all pupils at St Polycarp’s develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world.
The idea is that all pupils build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users.
Pupils are taught to critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others. In addition to this they are helped to understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.
