How do you teach design and technology at St Paul’s?

Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject which combines mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art.

At St Paul’s we follow the National Curriculum for design and technology.


The National Curriculum for design and technology aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world
  • 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
  • critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
  • understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.

Please look at our design and technology curriculum map to see what your child will be learning about this year.



Will my child have cooking lessons?

Yes. Food technology is an important part of our design and technology syllabus.  Children plan, cook, eat and evaluate what they have made!
