Subject Vision

‘Birchensale Middle School lies at the heart of the community. Our caring family values ensure the best possible environment for every pupil to realise their full potential’

Design & Technology will promote positive morals and values. We will work by means of individuality, responsibility and independence amongst staff and pupils. Pupils will engage in the design process including analysis, problem-solving, evaluating and the production of high-quality outcomes. Imaginative teaching and learning as well as a style that encompasses both new and old technologies and techniques will allow this to be achieved. Most importantly, pupils will be encouraged and supported to think creatively within an innovative, safe and positive environment. Secure and iterative subject knowledge will also underpin their understanding.
