Welcome to Sussex Road School Design Technology (DT)


Our DT Curriculum promotes our school’s ethos of Question – Challenge – Explore and builds upon and develops the children's problem-solving skills and resilience.  Our Enquiries aim to inspire the children and to provide a context for learning.  Our curriculum provides children with opportunities to explore, investigate and evaluate existing products in our world.  Children are also equipped with transferable skills that prepare them for a rapidly changing world as we place as much emphasis on the process the children go through as the end-product.

With regards to food and nutrition, we want to deepen the children's understanding of the vital role nutrition plays in good health and to equip the children with the skills and knowledge to enable them to achieve a nutritious diet for themselves and others.
