Design and Technology

Our Design and Technology aims at St Joseph’s are to promote an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. We want our children to become independent, resourceful thinkers as individuals and part of a team.  Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. 


Our intention is the children acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Design and Technology embeds our learning values. 


We use Kapow to teach Design and Technology.

Pupils are encouraged to be resilient, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens in God’s world.  Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the modern world, giving our children a context for their learning and life-long skills.


It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out’.  Proverbs 25:2-3
