Design Technology

At St Cuthbert’s we aim to deliver the Design and Technology curriculum using practical and creative approaches. Children solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, using a cross curricular approach projects involve using mathematics, science, computing and art. We encourage children to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.
