Curriculum Intent for Design and Technology
The Design and Technology Department at Valentines High School are dedicated to delivering an ambitious curriculum accessible to all which provides the widest possible range of opportunities for all students, no matter their circumstances to become self motivated, confident and creative learners.
Students will develop technical and practical skills valued by employers.
Design & Technology implements a rich and engaging curriculum, delivering our schemes in sequential order and guiding students from investigating and acquiring theories to designing and creating, through to analysing and testing their designs.
By the end of Key Stage 3, our students are equipped with vital life skills: from cooking healthy and delicious food, repairing and restoring their damaged clothes, to giving them the confidence to do DIY around their homes.
We also want our students to have a genuine understanding of the wider world and the importance of sustainability for the future of our earth - both sustaining ourselves and sustaining our planet.
Students leave us feeling confident, inspired, resilient and academically ready to pursue their dreams of attending university and securing a career in the Design, Engineering, and Technological industry.
