Design Technology

At Trimley St Mary Primary School we are passionate about promoting high standards of Design Technology.  Through combining the Early Years and National Curriculum with the Chris Quigley Essentials Planning Documentation, our Design and Technology curriculum equips all our children with the necessary skills in the design field.  By the time they leave Trimley St Mary, our children will be able to master practical skills, design, make, evaluate and improve, and take inspiration from the greats. 
Design Technology is linked with the task of problem solving through using resources, including digital technology, accurately and in an imaginative and creative way.  Having been faced with a range of design challenges, they will have made a variety of products, which serve a real purpose. 
Through our well-planned, and sequenced Design and Technology curriculum our children acquire the vital knowledge and skills required for the next stage of their learning journey and on into adulthood.  This enables the children of Trimley St Mary Primary School to become successful, active and positive members of their local community and wider world.

•Show significant levels of originality and the willingness to take creative risks to produce innovative ideas and prototypes.
