Respect, Ambition, Resilience, Compassion The core ethos of the school is to aim to send each young person able and qualified to play their full part, and in  key stage 3 our aim if to allow each young person to develop skills and knowledge; both in practical making, from woodwork to food and nutrition.  The students will be supported in DT with outcomes and lessons constantly adapting to suit the learners needs, in order for them to be proud with what outcomes they can achieve as they look towards the future. As a knowledge engaged curriculum, we believe that knowledge underpins and enables the application of skills; both are entwined. As a department we define the powerful knowledge our students need and help them recall it by developing their technical skills that focus on visualisation and realisation of ideas and information, with a focus on nutrition, drawing, physical materials food – hard materials  as well as knowledge and understanding of the current and emergent means of production, design and food nutrition.
