Design Technology Intent 

At Glade Academy we have the shared core values of respect, resilience and teamwork.  These values extend throughout all aspects of our lives and are embedded within our learning.  Design and Technology draws on many educational disciplines, including mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art.  We strive to deliver an engaging and immersive Design and Technology curriculum that will inspire all pupils to release their creative potential.

Design and technology is a practical, inventive and aspirational subject that can help inspire the creative minds of tomorrow. Through their imagination, pupils have creative control to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems.

Design and Technology helps the pupils at Glade Academy to springboard into an increasingly technological world.  Pupils are encouraged to take positive creative risks, and critically assess what does not work, which in turn helps them become inventive and enterprising members of the community.
