Design and Technology at Ashbourne Primary School inspires children to be resourceful, enterprising and imaginative.

Our work is underpinned by our vision and aims: ‘Nurturing aspiration through happy, creative learning’. Our PRAISE aims are at the heart of every lesson and our focus on the removal of barriers to learning is firmly embedded into all areas of the Art curriculum.

Children will participate in projects from design, through creation and modification, demonstrating practical skills and rigorous evaluation. They will learn to take risks, make mistakes and solve problems. Our curriculum will equip the children with the skills necessary to design and make an object which has purpose.
