Petham understands that D&T allows pupils to solve problems, think creatively and develop ideas. D&T offers pupils a chance to use creative thinking and activity within a defined purpose and tangible outcome. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond by developing ideas and eventually making products and systems. It encourages children to make positive changes to their quality of life. We are committed to nurturing pupils’ curiosity and creativity, as well as preparing them for living in a modern world with rapidly changing and advancing technology. Through the study of design and technology, they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industrial practices.
