Design & Technology

Design & Technology Vision Statement

Our aim is for the children at Fairview to receive a Design and Technology curriculum which is inspiring, creative and ambitious for all. They are taught to combine their designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding in order to design and make a product suitable for a consumer or purpose. Skills are taught progressively throughout the year groups to ensure that all children are able to learn and practice their skills before developing them further throughout their time at the school.


In addition, Design and Technology allows the children to apply the knowledge and skills learned in other subjects, such as Maths, Science, Computing and Art. Evaluation is a vital part of Design and Technology and the children at Fairview are encouraged to take on an evaluative approach throughout the whole cycle, meaning that they can comment on, adapt and improve their product at several stages. The Design and Technology curriculum provided at our school creates children who are risk takers, resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens, ready for life in their local community and in the wider world.
