Design and Technology

Design and Technology at Buxworth Primary School



 “There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.” - Milton Glaser


At Buxworth Primary School we want children to reach their full potential in physical, intellectual, emotional, aesthetic, social and spiritual growth. Therefore Design and Technology is intended to teach and inspire children, across the school years, to be innovative and creative thinkers who have appreciation of the product design process through design, make and evaluate. We aim to provide hands-on, practical experiences, enabling children to take risks that encourage motivation and give meaning to their learning.
