Design Technology

Our Bramber Intent for Design Technology


At Bramber, design technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. We use creativity and imagination where pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.


Our children acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. The children are taught to handle and use tools with care and with awareness of health and safety issues.


Bramber children learn how to take risks by becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.


Food technology also forms part of the curriculum. Children learn where food comes from, how it is processed, dietary requirements as well as preparing and cooking food.


Bramber Primary’s high-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.
