At Rockwell Green Church of England school, through the subject of Design and Technology, we aim to provide children with an opportunity to be imaginative and creative for a purpose. The subject encourages children to become independent and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond by developing ideas and eventually making products and systems. Through the study of Design and Technology they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues. This allows them to reflect on and evaluate present and past Design and Technology, its uses and its impacts.
