Design Technology Subject Leadership

At Gilded Hollins, we aim to teach Design Technology in a structured and engaging way in order to prepare children to become problem solvers and creative thinkers in a modern world. DT is taught through a ‘Learning Challenge’ curriculum. It builds on children’s skills and knowledge as they move through the school. Through the study of design, technology, materials and their uses, they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industrial practices. The children are encouraged to reflect on and evaluate not just their own ideas, but present and past design and technology. At Gilded Hollins, we ensure that pupils enjoy their work by making the work accessible to all children, whilst still being challenging. We envisage that DT will help and encourage all children to become discriminating and informed consumers and potential innovators as they grow up in an ever-changing world.
