Design and Technology

Bringing design and technology to life for our young designers of today!

Purpose and Aims

At NET, our Design and Technology curriculum aims to ensure:

  • Pupils develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world.
  • Pupils are progressively taught knowledge and skills to become innovative and creative thinkers who have an appreciation for the product design cycle: to design, make and evaluate products for a wide range of users developing their technical knowledge.
  • Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject.
  • Pupils develop the confidence to take risks, through drafting design concepts, modelling, and testing and to be reflective learners who evaluate their work and the work of others.
  • Pupils are aware of the impact of design and technology on our lives and encourage pupils to become resourceful, enterprising and capable citizens.
  • Understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.


The curriculum follows the Kapow Primary scheme of work and has been strengthened so that pupils revisit the learning in a spiral continuum curriculum. Pupils revisit strands and skills with greater complexity and depth. As the pupils return to a previous strand, prior learning is utilised, providing pupils with the foundations, and building blocks, in order to retain new information in the long-term memory.
