At Hillcroft, we believe that design and technology helps to prepare children for the developing world and encourages them to become curious and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. We encourage our children to use their creativity and understanding when developing ideas, planning, making products and evaluating them. Whilst enabling them to talk about what they like and dislike when designing and making.

Design and Technology also embeds our HIllcroft Learning Behaviours. It is an inspiring, and practical subject, requiring creativity and resourcefulness. At HIllcroft, the Design and Technology curriculum combines skills, knowledge, concepts and values to enable children to tackle real problems. We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, computing and art. 

We adapt our teaching of design and technology to meet the needs of all pupils, and provide learning opportunities that enable them to make progress. The children are encouraged to become risk takers and to foster enjoyment, satisfaction and purpose in designing and making.
