At Potters Gate and St Andrew's we believe that pupils should develop their independence and knowledge innovatively using a variety of learning styles in DT lessons.
To be inspired to think imaginatively and creatively to become more autonomous and effective problem solvers both as individuals and part of teams.
DT in our wider school curriculum would help in understanding not only other subjects but also incorporating our 6 aims of Curriculum intent –providing pupils with the skills to be responsible for their own health and well-being through a food technology focus, wood workshops, sensory projects, cultural awareness.
Pupils will become confident to use a variety of different tools and materials, within a purposeful context.
Pupils will understand the design process of design, plan and evaluate.
We aim to provide pupils with basic life skills to be more confident and self-reliant for when they leave our school.
