Bishop Ian Ramsey Church of England Primary School

Design Technology

At Bishop Ian Ramsey, we have a structure and sequence of lessons to help teachers ensure they have covered the skills required to meet the aims of the National Curriculum, using the Design Technology Association 'Projects on a Page' scheme of work.

Our intent is to ensure all pupils use creativity and imagination in their DT work and that they are able to design, make and evaluate products that solve problems in a variety of meaningful contexts.

Children have the opportunity to develop the creative, practical and technical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently. Children will build their knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design products for a wide range of uses; in textiles, in food and nutrition and in construction.

A high quality design and technology curriculum makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the country, and we believe strongly that by providing our children with this curriculum, they will be upholding our Christian vision to ‘Shine as a light in the World’ (Philippians 2: 14-15).
