At St Uny CE Academy, it is our intent that Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Our aim is to encourage learners to think creatively in order to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. At St Uny CE Academy, 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 and consider their own and others’ needs, wants and values. We aim, wherever possible, to link projects to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Learners are given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness and are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers so that they become lifelong learners.
