Headfield CE Junior School

Design and Technology

DT Policy 

It is important to prepare children for a technological future and provide children with the design and technology skills that will be vital for future jobs and valuable life skills.

At Headfield we provide opportunities for each child to design, make and evaluate their ideas through a series of exciting projects linked to their current cornerstones topic. Children are encouraged to be inventive and use a wide range of tools and materials.
