Art and Design Technology

At Inglewood we celebrate the creativity of everyone through our Art and DT learning

Design and Technology

Design and Technology allows us to teach all our learners practical skills and techniques so that they can physically arrange materials and components in order to find solutions to practical challenges or problems. Our curriculum allows all learners to make their own choices and decisions, to discuss the reasons for these and evaluate their products. As our learners practise their skills and develop knowledge of materials, we also encourage their creativity and imagination.

Through the DT curriculum, we also want to develop our learners’ knowledge of how to keep themselves healthy and make informed choices about healthy eating. We want them to be able to choose, cook and eat safe, healthy food, so we can equip them with the knowledge and skills that will help them to make healthy choices now and in later life.  Our four main learning areas which all children access each year with prgression of skills and knowledge are . . . . 





For every unit of learning we follow the learning process 

Design - Make - Evaluate

Every child has their own sketch book

Art and Design

Art and Design provides exciting opportunities for our learners to be creative and imaginative, whilst building knowledge, understanding and skill and developing a greater appreciation and awareness of the arts. Our learners will demonstrate this creativity and evidence their knowledge and skills during Art & Design lessons and throughout the wider curriculum. We know that our staff will inspire, emphasise and challenge your child to be creative and will celebrate the creativity of everyone.
