Design Technology at Inspire
Design and Technology is vital for all children to foster their imagination. At Inspire Academy, we seek to provide our pupils with opportunities to apply creative thinking and design within a specific purpose and definite outcome. Through a variety of creative and practical activities, pupils are taught the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to engage in a process of designing and making. They work in a range of contexts through our topic-based approach which allows for links to be made between subjects. Pupils learn how to take risks whilst becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop an understanding of this subject’s impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.
