Design and Technology

Subject Intent

At Bakewell, we aim for our Design Technology high-quality curriculum to be inspiring, rigorous and practical.  Using creativity and imagination, pupils will design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts.


We link Design and Technology to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. The children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness and are encourage to become innovators and risk-takers.  This will provide the foundations needed to support the transition into Junior school and beyond.
