Design Technology


At FPIS we value Design and Technology. Design and Technology is an inspiring and practical subject. Using creativity, curiosity and imagination, our children design and make products that link to the wider curriculum and broader world within a variety of contexts, considering their own needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Children learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, independent and resilient citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop an understanding of its 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 future.
