St Mary’s Design Technology Rationale

“We don’t simply think outside of the box, we ask what can be done with the box?”

At St. Mary’s, our Design Technology curriculum encourages children to embrace failure as a friend in their pursuit for success. We nurture our children to become creative and calculated risk-takers, forever probing for knowledge about the fast-paced and constantly evolving world we live in.

Our children are encouraged to delve into the lives of significant designers, exploring their achievements and asking questions about their inventions. They are supported in their process of practising skills, designing and creating, with evaluation being at the heart of every project. Our curriculum allows children to create with a purpose, taking risks with their design process within the comfort and safety of well-structured lessons.
