At Dubmire we consider Design Technology to be an important part of the curriculum. We teach technology in order to enable pupils to feel confident and comfortable in a technological world. It is necessary to prepare our pupils to participate in tomorrow’s rapidly changing technologies. Through Design Technology they learn to think and intervene creatively to improve their quality of life.
Design & Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. We aim to give our pupils the confidence and competence to identify, examine and solve practical problems involving the design and production of artefacts or systems. At Dubmire we encourage our pupils to take risks and learn from their mistakes through effective evaluations. We use a variety of approaches, materials and creative methods in order to prepare our children to play their part in our technological society.
