At Banks Road Primary School, we believe that teaching pupils how to design, make and evaluate products in a creative and practical way, will allow them to develop skills and attributes they can use beyond school life. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.
We measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods:
- Pupil Voice – Interviewing children about their learning.
- Marking work in books.
- Summative assessment of pupil discussions about their learning.
- Images of the children’s work and practical learning.
Design Technology will also be monitored by the subject leader throughout the year in the form of book monitoring, looking at outcomes and pupil interviews to discuss their learning and understanding and establishing the impact of the teaching taking place.
