At KDPS we aim to provide all children with a broad and balanced curriculum which prepares them for life beyond primary education. We encourage children to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. 

During Design and Technology, we teach children the language skills they will need to be effective communicators. We actively encourage our children to be critical thinkers, forward planners and effective problem solvers. We also teach our children to be able to work as capable individuals and as part of a valuable, productive team. Resilience is a key theme running through our DT curriculum, and the children are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers. 

Design and Technology is a subject where children’s capability in designing and making is developed through combining their designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding. At KDPS we view Design and Technology as a subject which allows children to apply their knowledge and understanding in a creative way to design and make products.
