Design and Technology

Imaginative thinking

Vision for Design Technology

 At Dove Bank Primary we want to prepare our pupils to be part of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world.

We aim to develop creative, technical, imaginative thinking children through our teaching of Design Technology, as well as developing perseverance, resourcefulness and the confidence to take risks. 

At Dove Bank we strive to give the children a wide range of experiences and opportunities through the use of different resources and equipment whilst being safe, happy, respectful learners.  

What’s New?

As part of our exciting Cornerstones curriculum all aspects of Design Technology are covered, ranging from structures to mechanisms, cooking to electrical systems.
