Design & Technology

Design and Technology involves applying knowledge and skills when designing and making products. The activities undertaken enable our children to consider the needs of individuals and society within a caring community. Undertaking design and technology activities in school give our children opportunities to use a range of materials and processes; to explore, evaluate and amend ideas; and to build on their skills for both independent learning and team work. We aim that the activities undertaken during their time at Westfield School will also reflect the children's local environment and support them in the wider world. The children’s success is acknowledged and celebrated.

DT also involves understanding and implementing safety in using tools and materials, a key life skill.
