"Design is a funny word. Some people think design is how it looks. But of course, if you look deeper, it's really how it works." - Steve Jobs
At St. Teresa’s Primary School, we value Design Technology as it prepares children for the rapidly changing world. We aim for it to be an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject where 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. Pupils will acquire a wide range of subject knowledge and draw on other disciplines such as mathematics, science, computing and art. They will learn how to take risks, become resourceful and innovative. They will evaluate past and present design and technology, whilst developing a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.
