At Longfleet, we are designers. We believe that design technology promotes and excites children’s creativity and independence, allowing them to develop a greater understanding of the need and purpose to products around them. It ensures that their enquiring minds are stimulated to think more critically about the world around them and how things are made.
We have planned a well sequenced and progressive curriculum map containing the key knowledge and skills children need to work and think as designers. The design technology curriculum promotes a deeper understanding of all four of the school’s core values (Aspiration, Resilience, Kindness and Wisdom) and it is the Wisdom aspect that is particularly developed. This supports our pupils to live a ‘life in all its fullness’ where they can use their knowledge and skills to make a difference to the lives of others.
