Design Technology

The Design and Technology Subject Leader is Mrs Amanda Awford


At Selborne Church of England Primary School, we believe that all children are entitled to a broad balanced design and technology Curriculum.  It is our intent that different skills are taught using a wide range of resources and to study a range of  techniques used.  We believe that every individual should have the opportunity to develop and realise their true potential through design and technology.  To ensure that this happens, we aim to consistently provide learning opportunities for all children that offer challenge, intellectual stimulation and an enriched curriculum.


Please see the documents below to gain a full understanding of our Design and Technology curriculum here at Selborne including the intent, implementation and impact which can be found in the subject policy.
