Design & Technology at Quinton Church Primary School


At Quinton Church Primary School, we believe that design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, the children design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art.

Children learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Design is the process of intentionally creating something while at the same time considering its purpose. The children learn to think about and understand the function, economic, sociocultural factors and aesthetics of their products.

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 nation.

When studying Design and Technology at Quinton, children become self-motivated and confident learners, when working independently or as part of a team.
