Tottington Primary School delivers an inspiring, rigorous and practical Design and Technology curriculum. Through creativity and imagination, pupils design and create items that solve problems in the real world. Design and Technology enables children to draws on their maths, science, engineering, computing and art skills. Risk-taking is an integral to DT and once learnt, children become resourceful, innovative and enterprising. Through evaluation of real past and present Design and Technology, pupils become critical thinkers and see the purpose of design for the real world.
At TPS, we believe this world needs adults with these skills and traits: to design and think up engineering feats such as new, carbon free energy sources or synthetic fuel, fit for air travel. Without a creative, imaginative education, we would not produce creative, innovative adults to become ground breaking engineers, architects, technicians, inventors and designers.
