Christ The King RC Primary School

Design & Technology


At Christ the King, pupils are taught design and technology as part of a broad and balanced curriculum. Our design and technology provision has been specifically tailored to meet the unique context of our school. Through this provision, we aim to help all of our pupil’s master their learning and deepen their knowledge; allowing them to make sense of and give purpose to the design and technology National Curriculum. At Christ the King, we believe that design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Design and technology, within our school, allows children to solve problems and design new and innovative products for a range of different purposes and audiences. Children are given the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge through studying a range of different topics including; electrical systems, food, mechanisms, structures and textiles. Design and technology encourages children’s creativity, with the curriculum tailored to engage, inspire and challenge our pupils, equipping them with the skills to design, invent and create unique pieces of work. We strive to encourage our pupils to learn to think creatively and solve problems, both as individuals and as part of a team. Pupil’s will be instructed 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.
