Design and Technology

Design Technology aims to develop an understanding of technological processes, products and their manufacture, and how these contribute to the world around us. Our children work individually and collaboratively in a range of designing and making activities, initially developing ideas, then making products and eventually evaluating them. They learn how to acquire and apply knowledge and understanding of: materials and components, mechanisms and control systems, structures, existing products, quality and health & safety. Children at Stafford Leys have many
opportunities to develop and refine their practical skills associated with making products, including working with a range of materials and components, tools and processes.
