Design & Technology

Design and Technology Statement of Intent

The Core Christian values at North Ferriby Church of England Primary School are Friendship, Forgiveness, Trust, Service and Creation. These values underpin our curriculum and enrich all aspects of our pupils’ education. Our curriculum prepares children for the future by developing Heathy and Safe, Trusting, Enterprising and Creative members of the local community. Embedded within our teaching and learning are opportunities for the pupils to understand the meaning and significance of the Christian faith.

At North Ferriby Church of England Primary School the Design and Technology curriculum aims to engage our pupils through a broad range of practical experiences.  We aim to create innovative designs which solve real and relevant problems within a variety of different contexts. The design process is fundamental and runs throughout the curriculum. This process encourages children to identify real and relevant problems, critically evaluate existing products and then take risks and innovate when designing and creating solutions to a problem. As part of the design process, time is built in to reflect, evaluate and improve prototypes using designated design criteria. Opportunities are provided for children to evaluate key events and individuals who have helped shape the world, showing the real impact of design and technology on the wider environment and helping to inspire children to become the next generation of innovators
