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 and our main priority is for students to be problem solvers who are resilient whilst taking risks.
The department firmly believes that students learn best by experimenting and taking risks. This is achieved through imaginative teaching which links to the outside world by providing experiences to students via trips and industry expert workshops. At the heart of this, is the desire to deliver a well rounded curriculum in which all students produce high quality outcomes. This enables them to combine their designing and making skills with knowledge, in order to design, make, analyse and evaluate products of high quality.
