At Pleasant Street Primary School, we want to encourage our pupils to develop a love of Design and Technology, including Cooking and Nutrition, and to understand it’s relevance in today’s society.

We encourage pupils on their own creative journey where they have the opportunity to learn new life skills through exploration, designing, making and evaluating; which are key to a successful end product.

Following an iterative process during D&T will build their resilience and resourcefulness and build on their knowledge of healthy eating to enable them to make sensible choices. We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions are and grow up with aspirations to work in a wide range of professions.
