Design Technology has a special role to play at Rumworth School. It provides broad, balanced and relevant situations to which pupils can relate. It is delivered under the subject headings of Food, Resistant Materials, Graphics and CAD/CAM.
Activities allow pupils to use their own experience as a basis to build knowledge, understanding and skills. By its very nature and by a problem solving approach, topics can be studied with a view to their application in everyday life.
Activities will allow for independent and individual research and design work. Many of the skills encountered are transferable to other curriculum areas and can be considered “life skills”
