At Skelton School it is our intent to provide high quality design and technology education. Design and technology is an inspiring and rigorous subject where children can use and develop their creativity and imagination to design and make real products which aim to solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. Considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. We aim to enable our pupils to develop their skills and knowledge in design, mechanisms, electrical control and a range of materials, including food. As well as subject specific knowledge pupils will also draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Design and technology helps to equip pupils for the future. They will know how to take risks, be resourceful, innovative, enterprising and be capable, caring citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present designs pupils are able to develop a critical understanding of the role products play in daily life and the wider world. High-quality and engaging design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.
Children are born curious, our design and technology curriculum nurtures this.
