Design Technology

Intent Statement

At Larkholme Primary School, Design Technology (DT) 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. It aims to ensure that all pupils develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.

We provide our children with opportunities for them to 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. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.
