Our Curriculum

Design Technology

Whitkirk Primary School (46)


D&T Progression of Pitch


At Whitkirk Primary School, we are designers, engineers and architects! We have built a Design Technology curriculum which develops learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills.   

Design and Technology prepares our children to deal with tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. At Whitkirk, we ensure all our design briefs have a clear user and purpose. To make sure that our design briefs are relevant, we base them on contemporary problems. We encourage children to become independent, creative problem solvers and thinkers as individuals and part of a team.  Through the study of Design and Technology at Whitkirk Primary School, we combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industry. This allows our children to reflect on and evaluate past and present technology, it's uses and impacts.
