Loving for Today, Learning for Tomorrow, Forever in Faith

Design and technology

He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers – all of them skilled workers and designers.


Exodus 35:35

New International Version


At Northaw, design and technology taps consciously into human dreams of a better world realised through collaboration. We follow Projects on a Page from the Design and Technology Association. Practice is at all times healthy, safe and hygienic. Our newly refurbished design hub is used for exhibiting artworks and projects, inspiring creativity, and storing materials and tools.

Adaptation for Inclusion


We want pupils with SEND to achieve exceptionally well in DT, and have constructed a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to give all pupils, particularly disadvantaged pupils and pupils with SEND, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. The curriculum is successfully adapted to meet the needs of pupils with SEND, developing their knowledge, skills and abilities to apply what they know and can do with increasing fluency and independence.

Teachers can also refer to our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Guidance where classroom difficulties and strategies to support are listed by area of need.
