Henbury Court Primary Academy

Design Technology

‘Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. ….High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation’

Our intent is to give pupils a solid foundation and broad experience of ‘designing’, ‘making’ and ‘evaluating’ through a variety of media and materials. At Henbury Court, we aspire to be creative inventors. Our design and technology curriculum will prepare children to take an active part in the development of today’s rapidly changing world.  We will inspire them to be inventive problem-solvers, effective team members and reflective evaluators.   The children at Henbury Court are taught to acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. We will provide them with opportunities to develop practical skills for life and above all, develop their aspirations to become the designers, innovators, and technologists of the future
