How DT supports our school’s vision:
Design Technology at GPCE is a practical subject where children are given the opportunity to make choices and find creative ways to solve real and relevant problems, both as individuals and collaboratively. Through the study of Design and Technology, they combine these practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as function and industry. By both reflecting on and evaluating technology, its uses and impacts- pupils are able to design, make and evaluate their own prototypes and products. Pupils will be given the technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently, including the skills needed for cooking and food preparation.
