Design Technology


At Holy Trinity our vision of Love, Honesty and Respect is the foundation for all that we do as a Church school and is reflected through our curriculum. Our DT curriculum encourages children to become independent, creative, problem solvers, team players and confident learners.  As teachers, we aim to provide meaningful and memorable experiences which develop learning and result in the acquisition of knowledge and skills. Children are given the opportunity to identify needs and opportunities and respond to them by developing a range of ideas, products and systems.

Through the study of D&T, children will reflect on and evaluate past and present technology. At Holy Trinity we believe in allowing children to develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world. During their time at Holy Trinity children build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users. Children have the opportunity to critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others. Children are taught to understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.

At Holy Trinity we have a responsibility to ‘include’ all students in the curriculum, regardless of their academic or physical ability, ethnicity, social class, gender or religious belief.
