Design Technology Vision Statement
At Fulwood St. Peter’s we offer a challenging and engaging curriculum that is rigorously taught through the four areas of design development to motivate our pupils. Teachers devise sequential lessons allowing pupils to gain the practical skills needed to cover a variety of contexts.
We reveal the careers and industries which link our knowledge and skills to the wider world allowing pupils to solve relevant problems from the real-life. Pupils are challenged to use their technical knowledge to practically create the visions of their imagination.
The design stages of design incorporate choice and are undertaken independently and provide the opportunity to build emotional well-being and give every pupil the opportunity to achieve their full-potential.
The evaluation stage of design is undertaken with the choice of independently or with peers in team learning so that the pupils have the chance to explore alternative perspectives and further develop in-depth technical knowledge through collaborative discussion and learning.
