Design and Technology


 "When you are designing something what you are actually doing is identifying the human problem and executing them the best solution.  Design is all directed towards human beings."

Ivan Chermayeff - American Designer 1932-2017 

Design and Technology: Our Intent for the subject.

At Walter Evans, DT is practical and exciting, imaginative and innovative.    We believe that children should pose questions in order to be curious and enterprising.  Through DT children will learn new practical and technical skills enabling them to perform everyday tasks and allowing them to develop an understanding of design projects in our communities.  We ensure that children test, evaluate and critique their own work in a purposeful way in order to foster improvement and success.  The essential process of design, make and evaluate is embedded ready for their transition into KS3.

 How it fits within our school vision.

Our school vision is rooted in the Christian faith. As a proud Church of England school, our vision is underpinned by the Church of England’s vision for education. This vision identifies four interlinking aims for all our pupils and, at its heart, lies LOVE (Luke 10:27).

It is this LOVE for God, for our neighbours and ourselves, that forms our Christian foundation to underpin all that we do.

School Vision Statement

At Walter Evans we believe in a broad and balanced curriculum where all subjects are valued. A broad and balanced curriculum will equip our children with a breadth of knowledge and skills in all areas of the curriculum. We aim for our pupils to ‘Persevere, be curious and inspired through their learning’.
