Design and Technology at Grove Primary School



Our Rationale 2021/22


At Grove Primary School and Nursery we are designers!


We want our pupils to love design and technology. We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions are and grow up wanting to be graphic designers, fashion designers, chefs, engineers, architects and 3D modellers! We want them to embody our core values and be creative. We want to develop a keen eye for detail.


We all believe that we can: “Bring Out the Best in Everyone”.


The design and technology curriculum has been carefully crafted so that our children develop their design and making capital. We want our children to remember their design technology lessons in our school, to cherish these memories and embrace the opportunities they are presented with!


At Grove Primary School and Nursery, there is a focus on developing language which enables children to fully express their ideas with the use of subject specific vocabulary; children are able to critique and evaluate both their own and the work of others, showing tolerance and respect. Children learn to take risks, be reflective, innovative, enterprising and resilient. Through the evaluation of past and present technology, they can reflect upon the impact of Design Technology on everyday life and the wider world.
