National Curriculum Review
Revised Programmes of study for D&T in England
Following a period of formal consultation of the schools curriculum for England, the Department for Education has published the revised Design and Technology (D&T) programmes of study for KS1 to 3.
During the consultation period, Practical Action along with many other organisations submitted responses to the DfE.
Following concerns with earlier drafts of the D&T curriculum, we are delighted with the opportunities that the curriculum now offers, including:
Purpose of the subject 'Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, pupils develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world'
Key stage 3 'understand developments in design and technology, its impact on individuals, society and the environment, and the responsibilities of designers, engineers and technologists'
Thank you to all of you that helped to achieve this great outcome for young people in schools in England.
We are looking forward to supporting you to deliver on these requirements.
