Design and Technology (DT)

Design and Technology at Worle Village Primary School


Here, at Worle Village Primary School, we value and are dedicated to the teaching of Design Technology. We see this as a fundamental part of school life.


We are committed to providing a ‘DT Curriculum’ based around 6 ‘big ideas’ for our children:

1. Research the world around them

2. Exploration and investigation

3. Any idea is a good idea

4. Tool skills and confidence

5. Design, creation and resilience

6. A healthy outlook through food technology


We believe that by developing this, we can contribute to the quality of our children’s lives, both within and beyond school. We see DT as a means to support learning in a range of ways including everyday life. The skills that are developed in these subjects are progressive each year and can be transferred across the curriculum and thus aid learning.
