Design Technology

The named Design Technology Subject Leader at Our Lady's is Mrs H Spear

Design Technology (D.T.) at Our Lady's School aims to:

  • teach D.T. in line with Curriculum 2014
  • give all children the opportunity to develop their designing capabilities through a variety of planned activities
  • develop children's knowledge and understanding of D.T.,  and develop D.T. skills using a range of tools, materials and components safely.


In the Early Years Foundation Stage this is part of children's creative development. They learn to handle tools, objects, construction and malleable materials safely and with increasing control.


At Key Stages 1 and 2, the D.T. curriculum is supported by our scheme of work developed by the Design and Technology Association.


At Key Stages 1 and 2, D.T. is taught in part during Creative Curriculum lessons.  Three times a year, D.T. units are taught across 1 - 2 days to ensure thorough coverage of the curriculum.


Resources are centrally stored and are updated in line with our Design Technology scheme of work.
