Design and Technology

Design and Technology


We want our pupils to leave Allerton CE Primary as independent and creative problem solvers who imaginatively engage with the wealth of past and present design and technology. Pupils learn to work both collaboratively and independently to design, create and evaluate a wide range of products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts.

As designers, pupils learn to consider their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They become increasingly reflective learners who are prepared to adapt their ideas and designs and critically evaluate their finished products. Moreover, through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. The Design and Technology curriculum enables children to gain the skills that equip them to deal with a rapidly changing world, learning how to take risks and becoming resourceful, innovative and successful citizens.


Cooking at Allerton CE Primary


We aim to provide pupils with regular opportunities to create a wide range of healthy dishes. By developing pupils’ knowledge of how to prepare, cook and combine different ingredients and simultaneously providing them with the practical skills to follow different recipes, we aim to ensure that all pupils leave school with the ability to feed themselves and others, both affordably and well. Work is either done in the classroom or in our industrial spec Cafe.
