Design and Technology

Design & Technology Intent Statement

Across Design & Technology we follow an iterative design process which includes investigation, design, development, making and evaluation. Every project follows this process and enables students to hone and develop their problem solving and creative skills during their time at Abbey Park School. 

We have created exciting projects across Graphics, Textiles, Resistant Materials and Food, Preparation and Nutrition. All projects have been designed to be inspiring, creative and practical.

Projects have two key pieces of assessed work: students will receive a formative WWW/HTI comment once they have completed their Investigation/Design work and will receive summative WWW/HTI comment once the project is completed. Literacy is also assessed as part of their project, this is usually within a longer written exercise such as a specification, product analysis or an evaluation.
