At Pleasant Street Primary School, we believe that developing an interest in design and technology is key to the future success of our children. We aim to develop their enthusiasm and confidence and ensure that all pupils:

  • Develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world
  • Build and apply knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users
  • Critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
  • Understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.

We have set up a dedicated Twitter account for Design and Technology across the school. Staff also use the hashtag #pleasantstdesigners when promoting DT throughout the school.
