Design Technology

at Green Ridge Primary Academy



Design Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. At Green Ridge, we encourage children to use their creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. We believe that it helps to prepare children for both the developing world and encourages them to become curious and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. Through the study of Design Technology, pupils combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues.
