Design and Technology Vision Statement
‘You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.’ (Maya Angelou, author, poet, civil rights activist)
At St John’s Primary School, we feel children should be inspired by people in society: engineers, designers, chefs and architects to enable them to create a range of structures, mechanisms, textiles, electrical systems and food products with a real-life purpose which balance function and aesthetics.
Design and Technology at St John’s Primary School is a practical, rigorous and inspiring subject requiring children to use imagination, resourcefulness and creativity. Design and Technology lessons are relevant, purposeful and acknowledge the unlimited potential of humans to solve problems. They allow children to be adventurous by developing their independent, collaborative, creative and practical skills in an increasingly technical world.
